[India], June 5 (ANI): About 1.1 million people die prematurely every year in India due to polluted air, says a report.

The air quality is deteriorating in all major and tier II cities. The root cause of this degradation in air quality lies in the way we treat our environment. The growing industrialisation and urbanization, along with poor waste management and increased vehicle density, are the main factors behind the deteriorating health of environment. Another cause, rather the result of Urbanization is the increasing active or passive smoking.

To bring in some relief, Amishi Naturals have introduced products Tar Nil that promote good lungs care for people involved in active or passive smoking and for those who live in high polluted cities like Delhi and Mumbai.

Polluted air can aggravate the health conditions of those with lung and heart diseases, and can give rise to health issues, including:

# Asthma

# Bronchitis

# Emphysema

# Loss of lung capacity

# Reduced life span

People with below conditions suffer a lot due to rise of toxic elements in air:

# Those with heart disease

# People who have respiratory diseases or disorders Pregnant women

# Pregnant Women

# Children

# Workers who mostly work outdoors Outdoor workers

# Elderly people

# Athletes, who exercise outdoors most of the time

However, conscious efforts can ensure that air pollution is kept under control for people to lead normal lives. And that's the idea behind celebrating 'World Environment Day' on June 5. This year, Canada is the host country and their theme is, "Connecting People to Nature." (ANI)
