Health issues for children
Health issues for children Pollution is one of the main environmental threats for all living organisms, making it one of the most important public health issue. Children are the main victims of this pollution. Air pollution is one of the most serious problems in the world. A large amount of chemical substances are suspended in polluted air and are breathed in daily, constituting a particular risk for children. It badly affects the children's immunity and respiratory systems. The main reason for it is that children mainly spend their time outdoors during holidays and afternoons when contamination is very high. During that time they inhale the higher amount of pollutants.
I am also confronting this same situation. I am the mother of 2 children. Both of them are boys. Whenever they get a holiday, they run out of the house to play with their friends. Nowadays, I see that both of them start coughing after they reach back from their playground. First, I thought that it was because of the dust on the playground. One day I accidentally happened to go to their play area. Then I saw that by the side of their playground a huge mountain of wastes being disposed of. I was shocked after seeing that. I came to understand that it was the smell of waste that is polluting the air.
I informed the authorities of the matter. They said that they would take proper measures to clean the area with the help waste disposal companies
. They also said that they would provide garbage bins to each house in the residential area for disposing of the household wastes. It would be of great help to all. The main reason is that most of the houses in our residential area is situated in a small area and most of them don't have proper methods to dispose of the wastes. If such a help is being provided by the authorities, the accumulation of wastes in public places would reduce.
