Impact of pollution on human health: A mini review article

Abstract

Exposures to environmental pollution remain a major source of health risk throughout the world. The combined effects of exposures and multiple exposures to different pollutants which might act synergistically all create difficulties in separating associations between environmental pollution and health. Pollution effects are indeed many and wide-ranging. There is no doubt that excessive levels of pollution are causing a lot of damage to human and animal health, tropical rainforests, as well as the wider environment. The present paper attempts to assess the impact of different pollutants by natural sources on human health and is expected to reveal not only the status of pollution-associated health problems but also form a baseline data for further detailed investigation on health impact assessment.
