The Effects of China’s Air Pollution

We can point fingers, but all of us have played a part in this. Almost everything we own was either moulded or produced in China. Due to this, we have made them very-very rich.

The Yellow River of China is drying up fast due to the expansion of factories, cities, agricultural farms etc. and whatever water is left is contaminated badly. The water is so much toxic that it is not even fit for agriculture. The pharmaceutical and chemical factories are the main cause of the contamination of this river. More than 4 billion tons of sewage is dumped into the river every year. The pollution of the Yellow River is the result of rapid industrialization in China. There has been a rise in the number of people suffering from cancer, water-borne diseases, and birth defects around the yellow river.
