A so­lu­tion to pol­lu­tion

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - UNZA SHARF

Pol­lu­tion is one of the ma­jor health haz­ards nowa­days due to which sev­eral res­pi­ra­tory dis­eases are caused. The dis­eases have se­vere im­pact. A so­lu­tion to it is tree plan­ta­tion through which we can re­duce pol­lu­tion. Trees are na­ture’s an­swer for di­min­ish­ing air pol­lu­tion as well as re­duc­ing res­pi­ra­tory prob­lems. Ac­cord­ing to the US For­est Ser­vice Sci­en­tist and Col­lab­o­ra­tors, the trees are sav­ing more than 850 hu­mans live per year and pre­vent­ing 670,000 in­ci­dences of acute res­pi­ra­tory symp­toms that’s all just by im­prov­ing air qual­ity.

Trees ab­sorb odours and pol­lut­ing gases like Ni­tro­gen Ox­ide, Am­mo­nia, Sul­phur Diox­ide and Ozone. So let’s make tree plan­ta­tion our goal and not wait for the gov­ern­ment to do so. Let’s just do that our­selves and save lives. —Via email
