The influence of the environment
Due to environmental pollution, there is a decrease in soil fertility, land degradation and desertification, loss of flora and fauna, deterioration of the quality of atmospheric air, surface and groundwater. In the aggregate, this leads to the disappearance from the face of the Earth of whole ecosystems and biological species, deterioration of the health of the population and a decrease in the life expectancy of people.
About 85% of all diseases of a modern person are associated with adverse environmental conditions arising through his own fault. Not only is the health of people falling dramatically: previously unknown diseases have appeared, their causes can be very difficult to establish. Many diseases have become more difficult to cure than before. Therefore, now the problem “Human health and the environment” is very acute.
