Air Pollution is Group 1 Carcinogen

If this doesnt bring us on streets of Delhi, I dont know what will. Arvind Kejriwal you say on dharna to fight corruption and came to power. Corruption is intact. Pollution is a cause u can make a difference and u are the CM. Read below and do something .

WHO has classified air pollution as a group 1 carcinogen (cancer-causing agent) in humans due to an overwhelming evidence that links it to cases of lung and bladder cancer. Long-term exposure to fine particulate matter has been known to cause premature death by lung cancer (has one of the lowest survival rates) Other non-fatal conditions due to exposure are irritation, chronic inflammation of airways, cyst formation in the lung, COPD, asthma, bronchiectasis and many other respiratory ailments.

Chronic air pollution has been increasingly linked to cerebrovascular and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's. It has also known to worsen dermatological conditions. Unrelated diseases like diabetes have shown a strong association with particulate pollution. Long-term exposure to the same is also linked with a decrease in renal function and many other kidney diseases. It is also known to decrease intelligence and cognition along other metabolic functions.

All these damages are cumulative in nature—they keep compounding for every year that you have lived in Delhi. It is hard to undo all these years of damage done by dirty air. Yet it is shocking how a prescription as simple as clean air can do so much for your body more

We all need to take steps as Kejriwal and all politicians are busy among them selves with no care for public and hence self help is needed to stand for the cause, by ensuring PUC for all vehicles and also planting more trees and have indoor plants too more  
WE ALL SHOULD JOIN HANDS TO LOWER THE POLLUTION BY USING ROAD TRANSPORT & SOMEWHERE USING E-RICKSAW ETC more  
Which of our world’s cities has the worst air pollution? According to the World Health Organization, it’s Delhi, the capital of India. Although air pollution affects the entire population of this metropolis, Delhi’s children are the most defenseless against its toxic effects... Air pollutants such as sulfates, nitrates, and black carbon force their way into the developing lungs and cardiovascular systems of children, resulting in decreased quality of life and increased mortality rates....Delhi’s poorest children are the most vulnerable and bear the most burden of the city’s poor air quality. There is an inverse relationship between socioeconomic status and the pervasiveness of lung function deficits...There is hard evidence now to act urgently to reduce the public health risk to all, particularly children….India will have to take aggressive action to reverse the trend of short-term respiratory and cardiac effects as well as long-term cancer and other metabolic and cellular effects... Are the powers-that-be listening ???? more  
Who are not caring pollution, they will also suffer, for there , they should take action more  
Nobody want to work on field. All are playing with blame game. more
