“Often we can’t even see it, but air pollution is around us everywhere. We can’t stop breathing, but we certainly can take small initiatives at our end to improve air quality,” said Dr Anil Goyal, Convenor, World Environment Day, IMA.

New Delhi: Experts from the Indian Medical Association, Delhi Medical Association and doctors from a private hospital gathered Tuesday on the eve of World Environment Day to raise awareness about air pollution and its impact on health.

Experts highlighted how much each individual on average contributes to air pollution and ways to reduce air pollution with collective efforts of the society.

Dr Girish Tyagi, president, Delhi Medical Association said, “Burning waste in the open is one of the factors for increasing pollution levels. Organic waste in landfills releases harmful dioxins, methane and black carbon into the atmosphere.”
