Editors: Rajat Sethi (Texas A&M Health Science Center (TAMHSC), Bryan, Texas, USA)
Book Description:
Industrial pollution is the largest fountain of air offenses in most of the developed world. Statistics from the U.S. Environmental Agency confirm that more than half of the nation’s total pollution is courtesy of industry. What’s more, six out of every ten people in the United States live in urban areas and are currently inhaling these bi-products. The consequence of air misuse is glaring: approximately four percent of all deaths in the United States are attributed to air pollution. This book highlights the sources and effects of air pollution, and also puts forth solutions. Successful pollution prevention is essential to our future well-being. Quintessential to this end, is prevention through education; the goal of this publication. (Imprint: Nova)
