The Importance Of Pollution Monitoring
Pollution is defined as any form of energy or matter that makes air improper, harmful, toxic, or offensive to health. How to monitor? Look!
Pollution is defined as any form of energy or matter that makes air improper, harmful, toxic, or offensive to health. As the sources of pollutants in the atmosphere grow, the impact is felt directly on human health and ecosystems (such as corrosion and soil and water quality). Hence the requirement to pay more attention to monitoring air quality.
Control to reduce impacts
This monitoring aims to identify pollutants, quantify them and indicate the harmful effects present, and ensure sustainable and environmentally sound socioeconomic development with the prevention, combat, and reduction of emissions of pollutants.
Growing population increases pollution
The continuous growth of the population rises social services, which cause problems in air quality, such as a higher number of automotive vehicles, both private and public transportation, growth in the name of industries, especially those that generate energy, increase in works, among others.
Direct reflection on health
It is easy to see the symptoms that we are breathing polluted air: dry cough, tiredness, burning eyes, nose, and throat. The groups at highest risk, which are most sensitive to these problems, our children, the elderly, and people with respiratory and cardiac diseases. Doctors warn that the symptoms may be even more severe depending on the sensitivity of each.
Epidemiological studies show a correlation between exposure to pollutants and the effects of morbidity and mortality, even when contaminants do not exceed air quality standards. It is the responsibility of the State not only to monitor the concentration of pollutants but to adopt measures to prevent and improve air.
The increase in air pollution ends up generating more spending for public power since it is directly linked to the growth of hospital admissions and hospitalizations and use of medicines.
