It is sad that Diwali today has turned into Festival of Pollution!
The quantum of air pollution increases every year due to the bursting of crackers on Diwali.
Harmful gases like sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxides, carbon monoxide etc are released in air while bursting crackers. These gases cause ailments like asthma, bronchitis, wheezing, breathing problems, and other respiratory illnesses.
The toxic gas can also have adverse effects on pregnant women. Gases can also affect the mentally ill patients leading to depression, fear and stress. Some of these poisonous gases can directly affect our nervous system.
During Diwali the air pollution rate increases upto 30%. We definitely don't want to inhale such terrible toxic gases
