Exposure to Environmental Pollutants

Many people are chronically exposed to environmental pollutants from the air, water, and land. This happens when toxic substances enter the environment that people use and consume, affecting health and quality of life. Pollution can also come in the form of noise and light.  Chronic exposure to lots of noise and bright lights is a nuisance, and bad for people's health and quality of life. People have a right to protection from environmental pollutants.
