Abstract

Environmental pollution poses the major threat to global health in the world. However, in developing countries, the problem of pollution (air, water, soil, waste and noise) is increasing day by day due to rapid increase in industrialization and motor vehicle. The pollution produces harmful effects not only on human health (respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease and asthma, etc.) but also influence the plants and animals. Thus, to prevent from all health related issues there is a need to aware the different types of pollution, their cause, effect and remedial action. Hence, the aim of this review paper is to provide an overview of different types of pollution in detail, so that their effect could be minimized.
