Recent high temperatures drove to a higher level of air pollution, exceeding the admissible maximum by 2 to 4 times. The recent weather conditions are facilitating the accumulation of toxic gases in the layer of air from the soil’s surface. This ecological state is bad for both the health of the population and the environment, stated the head of the State Hydrometeorological Service Ilie Boian, cited by Info-Prim Neo.
According to Ilie Boian, in the last decades the human pollution factors have overcome the natural ones in scale, achieving a global characteristic. Atmospheric polluters vary, in terms of their nature, concentration, and duration effect over the human body, which may cause harsh consequences.
Medical and environmental specialists have determined a direct link between the environmental degradation and the increase in the number of patients with allergies, asthma, cancer and other diseases. The main polluters harming the human body are: nitrous oxides, sulfur dioxide, tropospheric ozone, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, phenols, and particulate matter.
