This scientific work has to do with environmental pollution in general but especially environmental air pollution. From the data of the World Health Organization are a large number of diseases that appear, are affected or exacerbated by the impact of environmental air pollution, and thus affects the quality of life of people in general. Environmental pollution usually includes air, land and water pollution. Sources of pollution are usually household appliances with the use of combustible materials, vehicles which, with the materials they use for combustion, greatly pollute the environment, indiscriminate use of pesticides and chemicals in agriculture as well as waste incineration and mismanagement. The use of natural resources outside the normal criteria has had alarming effects on the environment. Environmental pollution with special emphasis on air pollution treated in this paper certainly has a significant impact on the economies of countries facing this phenomenon. Environmental policies and instruments usually tend to reduce pollution levels to reduce costs from countries’ budgets as well as the impact of pollution that has gross domestic product. During pollution, of course, there are restrictions on the lives of citizens with chronic diseases, thus being absent from work and affecting the functionality of certain institutions but also various private companies.
The treatment in this paper of environmental pollutants, the impact on public health and the impact on the general economy will be more detailed.
Keywords: source of environmental pollution, environmental protection, World Health Organization, health impact, respiratory diseases, pollutants, waste mismanagement.
