The environmental impact of paint is diverse. Traditional painting materials and processes can have harmful effects on the environmental including those from the use of lead and other additives. Measures can be taken to reduce environmental impact, including accurately estimating paint quantities so waste is minimized, and use of environmentally preferred paints, coatings, painting accessories, and techniques. Every year we like to paint our home, furniture, etc. for decoration, protection, identification, sanitation. But we forget the impact of paint on our environment. This can cause some serious hazardous effect on our body like headaches, trigger allergies, asthmatic reactions, irritate skin, eyes, and put increased stress on vital organs such as the heart and not only paint but also its byproduct or by which paint creates are also more dangerous to us and our environment. Exposures to environmental pollution remain a major source of health risk throughout the world, though risks are generally higher in developing countries, where poverty, lack of investment in modern technology and weak environmental legislation combine to cause high pollution levels. Associations between environmental pollution and health outcome are, however, complex and often poorly characterized. Levels of exposure, for example, are often uncertain or unknown as a result of the lack of detailed monitoring and inevitable variations within any population group. Exposures may occur via a range of pathways and exposure processes. Individual pollutants may be implicated in a wide range of health effects, whereas few diseases are directly attributable to single pollutants. Long latency times, the effects of cumulative exposures, and multiple exposures to different pollutants which might act synergistically all create difficulties in unraveling associations between environmental pollution and health. Nevertheless, in recent years, several attempts have been made to assess the global burden of disease as a result of environmental pollution, either in terms of mortality or disability-adjusted life years (DALYs). About 8–9% of the total disease burden may be attributed to pollution, but considerably more in developing countries. Unsafe water, poor sanitation and poor hygiene are seen to be the major sources of exposure, along with indoor air pollution. Environmental degradation is among the primary negative impacts of pollution on the Earth. This includes a decline in air and water quality, which is caused by the introduction of harmful toxins and pollutants. These substances do not generally biodegrade. Instead, they linger in water and the air and disrupt natural processes. One negative effect of air pollution is the addition of surplus amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. This creates levels of dense smog, which may prevent sunlight from reaching the earth. In turn, this diminishes the ability of plants to carry out the life-supporting process of photosynthesis. Pollution also reduces air quality, which has detrimental effects on humans and animals by causing respiratory irritation and asthma. Lastly, pollution in the form of insecticides and pesticides may interfere with the growth of crops and introduce toxins into key water sources.
