The pollution levels of Delhi have reached a three-year hike. And studies have shown that life expectancy in Delhi is decreasing by 10 years. The air pollution is so harmful that the simple decision to step outside is a dangerous one. 

It kills both men and women alike. Women in Delhi, NCR anyway have had a problematic relationship with the region, because of safety issues. It isn’t uncommon for them to be told to stay indoors in the evenings. But, now, this advice can be helpful to them. Nevertheless, household pollution is dangerous as well. Some conditions that may develop are respiratory illnesses to cancer to eye problems

What are some of the conditions you may develop due to air pollution?

  • Reduced lung function
  • Respiratory infections 
  • Aggravated asthma
  • Maternal exposure is linked with adverse birth outcomes: low birth weight, pre-term birth and small gestational age births
  • Diabetes and neurological development in children

With Air Quality Index (AQI) skyrocketing the hazardous mark, we do realize the grave physical impact this is leaving on us. But, is there some link of this pollution to psychiatric disorders? 

Increasing evidence is starting to render understandings of the impact of toxic air components on the brain. A recent study, published in August 2019 by Rzhetsky called, ‘Is Pollution Linked to Psychiatric Disorders‘ attempted to understand this question. It was found that there are significant associates between air pollutants and psychiatric disorders. But, these associates don’t necessarily mean that one causes the other.

In any case, staggering data is contributing towards the ill effects of pollution, and the inhabitants of the Delhi NCR region are left wondering, is it time for us to leave our homes?

Apart from wearing masks and using air-purifiers, what are we doing to change this?

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. Iโ€™m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought Iโ€™d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Thanks
