Myelodysplastic Syndrome or MDS cancer due to pollution

Someone I know, their close family member got MDS or Myelodysplastic Syndrome, a rare form of cancer, due to high levels of Benzene in air in Delhi NCR. It has become not so rare in Delhi, and is very difficult to treat. Most infants in his bone marrow transplant unit didn’t make it.

Why arent doctors in the community more vocal about risks of pollution. Are they plain clueless or they dont want to speak up. more

We are a great nation full of briliant minds too, while our CM has decided to abandone Delhiites to face the pollution issue and public sufferings due to it, we must find possible solutions and force the government to take steps accordingly too. As per me the public solutions are-

1. Installation of Smoke towers all over Delhi
2. Procure and deploy Vaccum cleaners for road cleaning
3. Plant lot of trees in Ridge, all parks and any available place
4. Look at possibility of large Wind mills to creat air flow, to be able to break the grid lock

I request Local Circle and all readers to please come up with real solutions and take them up to the CM for enforcing, instead of just watching all public money in crores being wasted in advertising with no real work. more  
This is simply because of our insensitive approach of politicians, people,s less understanding about pollution and corruption.
If pollution arises in the months of October and November due to burning of Parali in Haryana and Punjab then why Govt can take appropriate measures and actions against such activity.
Now people say it started in Western UP areas like Saharanpur etc also. Why Parali is not in other parts of UP, Bihar etc? It,s because there farmers cut their crops to bottom and only 1-3 inches lower part of crops of Paddy is left with its roots in land and that become good for next crop once that is ploughed thoroughly.
In Punjab and Haryana etc the the farmers reap their Paddy crops mechanically with machines which cut from top and thus maximum part of the crops part remains with land which can,t be ploughed and made fit for next crop. One more reason for not reaping it as the other UP and Bihar etc farmers do it is because they ,have Bulls etc whom they they can offer the straw to catlles to feed up them. more  
Disasters can be avoided by taking appropriate scientific steps. It needs proper awareness and essential implementation by all. But if we follow the BLAME GAMES STRATEGIES THEN WE SHOULD NOT WONDER IF ANY DISASTER/CALAMITY HAPPENS. WHENEVER, A DISASTER / NATURAL CALAMITY HAPPENS IT DOES NOT DISTINGUISH A PERSON ON THE BASIS OF CASTE, RELIGION, POSITION, STATUS etc.. more  
Based on my first-hand experience I can say that the medical profession itself has become so commercialized that many of the doctors and private hospitals do not hesitate to lower their integrity to make more money. Not only the air but the medical profession also seems to have become polluted more
