Polluted air is the cause of death of 2 lakh people in Gujarat

Air wave is a wave of death, Cause of death: Toxic substances dissolved in air, Number of deaths due to GIDC is not visible in 50 cities of Gujarat, We are killing our children, What the Gujarat government did in the case of foeticide, it is not ready to do it now for air murder, If the BJP government had taken steps for 30 years, then 1 lakh 20 thousand people could have been saved every year.

Every year 81 lakh people die due to air pollution in the world. 21 lakh people have died in India and 2 lakh 10 thousand people have died in Gujarat. Not only this, poisonous air also takes the lives of 7.09 lakh children every year. Even those below the age of five. We are killing our own children. We take their lives. 15 percent of children under the age of five die due to toxins present in the air. Pollution is killing more people than malnutrition. The invisible poison is getting dissolved in the breath, taking lives.

The study of the year 2021 has been done by the American research institute Health Effects Institute. UNICEF is also involved in the study. In which Gujarat is a polluted state as compared to the deaths in India, 10 percent of the total deaths in India have been estimated. The population of Gujarat is 6% but the pollution is more than other states of the country. The help of an American organization has been taken in preparing this report.

Death toll in 50 cities

Gujarat is often criticized that despite having a government of the same party for 30 years, the government is increasing pollution instead of reducing it. Instead of spreading pollution, it helps the industry. About 1 crore people are living in danger in 50 GIDCs.

50 cities of Gujarat are sitting on live bombs. A chemical factory in the middle of the city has become dangerous. There are 48 GIDCs within the city. Due to the development of the city, people have started living around it. Those who are constantly surrounded by mercury pollutants. Comes face to face with death.

During December to February, air pollution reaches a very dangerous level. In many areas, the Air Quality Index is above 300.

2.10 lakh deaths in Gujarat

According to the calculation, pollution is the cause of death of 2 lakh 10 thousand people in 10 percent of Gujarat. Because the industrial and urban areas of Gujarat are more horrific than other cities of the country.


7.09 lakh children under the age of five have died in the world. Out of these, more than 1.69 lakh children were from India. It can be estimated that 15 thousand children died in Gujarat. After malnutrition, air pollution is the leading cause of death of children under the age of 5. 72 percent of children died due to indoor pollution. But 28 percent of deaths are caused by PM2.5.

Contaminated fuel and air pollution during indoor food preparation were responsible for the deaths of children who lost their lives due to pollution.

After India, 1.14 lakh children die in Nigeria, 68,100 children in Pakistan, 31,100 children in Ethiopia, 19,100 children in Bangladesh. 44 lakh or 54 percent of the world’s deaths have occurred in India and China.

People are dying.

In 2021, 81 lakh people died worldwide due to air pollution. That is, air pollution is the second largest killer in the world. 90% of deaths due to air pollution are due to non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer and COPD. High BP, diet, malnutrition and tobacco are also major causes. Premature birth, low birth weight, asthma and lung diseases were included.

2015 Report
The organization had earlier released the report in 2015. In 2015, air pollution was responsible for about 1.1 million deaths in India, or 5% of total deaths. They have now doubled those deaths in 6 years.

Deaths at home
Residential biomass burning is the biggest contributor to the disease burden in India. Residential biomass burning caused 267,700 deaths, or about 25% of deaths caused by PM2.5.

Black coal
Coal consumption contributes significantly to the disease burden. Industrial sources and coal power plants caused 169,300 deaths (15.5%) in 2015. Companies like Torrent and Adani and GEB have coal power plants near or between major cities in Gujarat. So coal is the cause of 15 thousand deaths in Gujarat in 2015.

Causes of death
Coal combustion, which was almost equally divided between thermal power plants, was responsible. 66,200 (6.1%) deaths were caused by PM2.5 from open burning of agricultural residues. Traffic, transport, diesel and brick production contribute significantly to deaths. In 2015, 23,100 deaths were caused by transport, 20,400 deaths due to distributed diesel and 24,100 deaths due to brick production. 45 thousand factories are registered with the Pollution Control Board. 50 percent of which falls in the red zone. There are 35 thousand hospitals.

When there is pollution, the lungs gradually start to deteriorate. Their strength decreases and sometimes diseases like asthma, pneumonia, cough or fibrosis of the respiratory tract occur. Pollution is an important cause of respiratory diseases like pneumonia, tuberculosis and lung cancer.

Around 24 crore people in the world suffer from asthma, while 3 crore people in India are asthma patients. There are 25 lakh asthma patients in Gujarat.

There was pollution of the stove in the house, now there is pollution of the factory.

Cardiovascular diseases,

Chronic diseases of the respiratory system and infections in the lower part of the bronchial tubes i.e. lungs etc.
Particulate matter is increasing
If no action is taken
If no action is taken, the exposure of India’s population to PM2.5 is expected to increase by more than 40% by 2050. The exposure will increase from 74 µg/m3 in 2015 to 106 µg/m3 in 2050. The amount of 2.5 micron i.e. PM2.5 in the air should not exceed 35 micro grams per cubic meter. If present, heart disease, stroke, lung cancer, chronic lung disease and respiratory infections and respiratory tract infections occur.

4 lakh people will die from particulate matter in Gujarat in 2050
Compared to an estimated 11 lakh deaths in 2015, deaths due to ambient PM2.5 are projected to increase to 36 lakh by 2050 if no action is taken. By 2050, the urban population in Gujarat will be 60 percent more than the rural population. So after 25 years, 4 lakh people would have died. Knowingly or unknowingly they are filling poison in their mouths. Unknowingly they are swallowing poison in the form of pollution.

Who is responsible for 1 lakh 20 thousand deaths in Gujarat?

If action had been taken, about 12 lakh deaths in India could have been avoided. 1 lakh 20 thousand deaths in Gujarat could have been avoided. Air pollution has to be reduced to reduce the burden of diseases. If action is taken, about 12 lakh deaths can be avoided in 2050.

Consumption of wood or coal for home has to be reduced. Dust generated by human activities, road dust has to be removed. Industries are the only way to reduce the dangers of air pollution.

The Central Finance Commission has given a meager amount of Rs 14 crore to clean the air in Gujarat city in 2022. Out of which 2.50 crore was to be used to detect air pollution.

Naroda, Vadodara, Ankleshwar, Vapi, Surat and Rajkot are highly polluted areas of Ahmedabad. The Pollution Control Board has admitted that the Vatva area is extremely severely polluted.

A law was passed to ban the use of 15-year-old vehicles to prevent pollution, but it has not been implemented.

There are 35 thousand factories spreading air pollution in Gujarat. 1.10 lakh industries including water and hazardous industries come under the category of pollution.

Study of 200 countries
The 2021 report includes data from more than 200 countries and territories around the world. More than 90% of global deaths due to air pollution are caused by PM 2.5. This invisible poison dissolved in the air is causing the death of 78 lakh people every year.

The good news
The good news is that the level of these micro particles is stable or decreasing in many countries around the world. Globally, the average level of PM2.5 is 31.3 micrometers per cubic meter. Since 2010, the risk of air pollution-related diseases in children under five years of age has decreased by 35%. Awareness of the dangers of indoor air pollution has increased worldwide.
