Eye Health Tips: The levels of toxic air pollution in Delhi and the surrounding areas is becoming a menace to mankind. We all are inhaling horrible gases and harmful pollutants. It has been revealed that the air quality in NCR is as bad as smoking forty cigarettes in a day.
The main cause of air pollution is considered to be the open burning of agricultural waste, fumes of transport vehicles and industrial waste which emit toxic pollutants in the air. In 2017, the government had declared that pollution levels have reached a level of emergency, and are a potential health hazard and till date, we are sailing in the same boat.
Pollution almost affects every part of the body, and those who cannot avoid outdoor activities, or play outdoors (especially children) are the worst affected.
