The effects of environmental pollution are indeed detrimental to health of the people, as well as the inadequate housing facilities such as the absence of toilet and unsanitary living conditions. Thus, I strongly agree that there is a pressing need for the government to develop effective ways in solving this problem.
Industrial factories such as cement and coal mine are known to regularly release toxic chemicals to the air and rivers. As a result, by ingesting contaminated air and water, local communities will develop lung problems like pneumonia and asthma while others also suffer from cancer. One extensive measure that a government can do is to conduct regular spot examinations to know if proper procedure is being followed. Consequently, a harder punishment should be imposed such as 20 years imprisonment or a minimum of 5 million dollars if an accident occurs. A good example of this is the explosion that occurred at the factory in China which caused serious lung problems to the villagers, officials who were involved are expected to receive severe punishment.
Moreover, poor living conditions due to unavailability of proper housing areas compromise families’ health. Infectious diseases such as dysentery, amoeba and typhoid fever are easily transmitted from one person to the other especially when there is an absence of a toilet in the house. It is a fact that a number of families in poor neighborhood share communal toilets which is definitely unsanitary. However, this can be resolved by providing free housing to the less fortunate families. Each unit should contain a toilet and appropriate kitchen to promote hygienic food handling preparation. For instance, according to the Malaysian Department of Health, there was a significant drop of the number of people who acquired infectious diseases when families provided shelter at no cost.
In conclusion, it is highly important for the government to provide necessary action with regards to pollution and housing problems to enhance the health status of the nation.
