Pollution is the addition to receiving bodies of solid, liquid or gas, or mixtures thereof, provided that adversely alter natural conditions thereof, or that may affect the health, hygiene and welfare of the public.
The sources thatgenerate more pollution of anthropogenic origin are: industrial (refrigerators, slaughterhouses and tanneries, mining and oil), commercial (wrappers and packaging), agricultural (agrochemicals), home (packaging, diapers, garden waste) and sources mobile (vehicle exhaust).
What is Environmental Pollution?
Environmental pollution is called to the presence in the environment of any agent (physical,chemical or biological) or a combination of several drugs in places, forms and concentrations that are or may be harmful to health, safety or welfare of the population, or that may be harmful to plant or animal life, or prevent the normal use of the property and places of recreation and enjoyment thereof. Environmental pollution is also incorporated into the receiving bodies of solid, liquid orgas, or mixtures thereof, provided that adversely alter natural conditions thereof, or that may affect the health, hygiene and welfare of the public
As you increase the power of man over nature and new needs as a result of social life, the surrounding environment is deteriorating by the minute. The social behavior of man, which led him to communicate through language, which later formed humanculture allowed differentiation of other living things. But as they adapt to the environment to survive, man adapts and modifies the same medium as needed.
Technological progress, on the one hand and the rapid population growth, on the other hand, produce environmental alteration, in some cases threatening the ecological balance of the earth. Not that there is an absolute incompatibility betweentechnological development, the advancement of civilization and the maintenance of ecological balance, but it is important that the man knows harmonize. This requires that protects renewable and nonrenewable resources and to realize that environmental sanitation is essential for life on the planet
The contamination is one of the major environmental problems facing our world and arises when animbalance occurs as a result of the addition of any substance to the environment, in such amount that adverse effects in man, animals, plants or materials exposed to doses that exceed acceptable levels in nature.
Contamination can arise from certain manifestations of nature (natural sources) or due to different production processes of man (anthropogenic) activities that make up daily life.
The sourcesthat generate more pollution of anthropogenic origin are: industrial (refrigerators, slaughterhouses and tanneries, mining and oil), commercial (wrappers and packaging), agricultural (agrochemicals), home (packaging, diapers, garden waste) and sources mobile (vehicle exhaust). As emission source means the physical or geographical origin where there is a release contaminants into the environment,either by air, water or soil. Traditionally the environment has been divided for study and interpretation, these three components: air, water and soil, but this division is purely theoretical, since most of the pollutants interact with more than one environmental elements.
Types of Environmental Pollution
Water pollution: Water is the incorporation of foreign matter such as microorganisms,...
