Harmful effects of Synthetic Chemicals

According to the study published in the journal Nature earlier, nearly 3.5 million people die from air pollution-related illnesses every year, “and about 22% of these deaths are associated with goods and services that were produced in one region for consumption in another,” reports the Guardian. Those other regions are predominantly the U.S. and Western Europe.

The researchers noted that emissions are spreading far beyond the local industrial areas where the cheap toys, clothes, and electronics are produced, often affecting other countries including those thousands of miles away because of global air currents moving the toxic air around the globe.

“About 12% (411,100) of early deaths globally were related to air pollutants emitted in a different region of the world,” notes the Guardian.

In July 2016, over 40 leading US scientific and medical experts together with children’s health advocates issued a call for action to reduce widespread exposure to chemicals that interfere with foetal and children’s brain development. In the statement, published in Environmental Health Perspectives, the authors conclude based on the available science that: children in America today are at an unacceptably high risk of developing neurodevelopmental disorders that affect the brain and nervous system”
