Environmental pollution is the process by which land, water, air or other parts of the environment become dirty and unsafe or unsuitable for use or as a means of habitat for populations. Pollution arises when a pollutant is introduced into a natural environment. Things as simple as light, sound and temperature can be considered pollutants when they are introduced artificially and in high proportions into an environment. Toxic pollution affects more than 200 million people worldwide, according to Pure Earth, a non-profit environmental organization. In some of the places around the world where pollution rates are extremely high, babies can be born with birth defects and life expectancy can be so low that it can reach the age of 45 years because of cancers and other pollution-related diseases.
