The Remaining Five Sources


The following list of sources contains industries that Blacksmith believes contribute significantly to toxic pollution problems, but are either unquantifiable because of lack of data, or represent a smaller impact than the above top ten list.

Petrochemicals are chemical products derived from petroleum or other fossil fuels. Petrochemicals refer to a wide array of chemicals and could include chemicals discussed earlier in this report. They are chemicals that are used in adhesives, carpeting, cosmetics, paint, rubber, fabrics, fertilizers and plastics. Petrochemical processing is especially unique because fossil fuels such as oil and natural gas are used to create the building blocks of these chemicals. Because of this, petrochemical processing is often done in oil producing regions and occurs alongside other oil refining processes.

Pollution from oil use and production is generally outside of the scope of Blacksmith Institute’s work, due to the globally pervasive nature of this industry and number of sites impacted by oil pollution. Inclusion of this industry within our work would overwhelm current resources and lead to poorer understanding of the impact of other industries. The petrochemical industry is the exception.

Pollution from petrochemical processing and production contributes to 75 sites in the Blacksmith Institute’s database, potentially exposing more than 2.2 million people to pollution from petrochemical processing sites. Blacksmith has investigated polluted petrochemical sites in Africa, South America, Eastern Europe and South Asia. The petrochemical sites in the Blacksmith industry are largely polluted by untreated wastewater and sludge being disposed of in surface water sites. Untreated waste from petrochemical sites can contain very toxic pollutants and is tightly regulated in developed countries. The majority of investigated sites are contaminated by lead, but a large array of chemicals is found. These include, cadmium, mercury, volatile organic compounds, PCBs and oil or petroleum products. Health impacts from these sites include neurological damage, lung irritation and disease and forms of cancer.

E-waste is the general term for electronic waste from discarded computers and printers, cell phones, televisions and other related consumer products. Consumer demand drives the technological innovation that creates a cycle of obsolescence in which new devises are turned over almost yearly. This constant stream of new products results in an urgent and complex waste problem, it is estimated that 500 million computers became obsolete in the U.S. between 1997 and 2007, and computers represent only a small percentage of e-waste.[1] Total global e-waste estimates number between 20 and 50 million tons annually.[2] The waste is rarely processed in developed countries; an estimated 70 percent of it is imported to China.[3] In the Blacksmith Institute’s database there are almost 50 sites polluted by e-waste, potentially putting close to 600,000 people at risk. Of the 50 sites, majorities are located in China with Africa and South America holding several sites as well.

E-waste is made up of a mixture of different materials. Its complicated make up of metals, chemicals and plastics make it a unique stream of waste that requires specialized solutions. Many of the components contain a mix of heavy metals, and chemicals like PCBs and brominated flame-retardants.[4] The waste must be dismantled and the components extracted before recycling or disposal can take place. Many of the methods used, even in formal e-waste disposal sites, are unsafe and release hazardous elements. Recycling operations observed in developing countries have exposed open burning and dismantling of waste, cracking of cathode ray tubes containing high levels of lead, and unsafe dumping of waste products.[5] These processes release large amounts of toxins into the air where they are inhaled by e-waste workers and settle on the surrounding environment. Pollutants found in polluted e-waste sites from the Blacksmith Institute’s database include lead, chromium, cadmium, and polychlorinated biphenyls or PCBs. These pollutants cause neurological damage, lung irritation and disease and forms of cancer.

Increasingly, countries like China and India are creating laws to regulate the flow of e-waste imports; however there is still a vast market of illegal e-waste dumping and processing that is outside the realm of regulation. The Basel Ban forbids the export of e-waste to developing countries, but often e-waste is sent to low-income countries under the guise of donations. Recently countries in Africa, like Ghana and Nigeria, have come under a deluge of e-waste through a loophole that allows electronic goods to be exported as ‘working products’. When the “donations” are received, often times few of the items are even functioning, half a million PCs arrive in Lagos every month, and only 1 in 4 work. [6] The waste is usually burned to recover some of the materials or dumped, as the countries have no infrastructure to support recycling.

Heavy industry refers to metal casting, stamping or rolling production processes that create very large sized and heavy metal parts. These parts are usually designed and created for use in other large industrial processes such as electric plants and automotive plants. The industry processes varies greatly depending on the material used and type of product produced. Possible materials include steel, iron, brass or aluminum. It is a multi-step process that features many different chemical additives, heating and melting of elements and large amounts of water. Chemical additives include but are not limited to benzene, formaldehyde, toluene, cyanide salts and hydrofluoric acid.[7]

Most large heavy industry plants in developed countries are now closely regulated and their emissions and pollutants are monitored. There are advanced pollution controls and waste treatment options for the industry. Despite this, there are over 70 polluted heavy industry sites in the Blacksmith Institute’s database, potentially putting almost 3 million people at risk. The majorities of polluted heavy industry sites in the Blacksmith Institute’s database are abandoned sites or are small-scale plants that are unlicensed, lacking controls and have little resources to invest in new technologies or controls. The sites are geographically widespread with China, Eastern Europe, South and Southeast Asia having a large percentage of pollution incidences from heavy industry.

The key pollutants present at heavy industry sites include chromium, cyanide, cadmium, arsenic, and VOCs. Lead is the top pollutant at these sites, contributing the most to the global burden of disease and affecting the largest population. Pollutants from heavy industry enter the environment through contaminated wastewater and air that affects soil, food and drinking water for the surrounding communities. Health effects from these potential exposures include neurological damage, lung cancer, leukemia and other lesser effects.

Pesticide is an umbrella term used for any substances that prevent or destroy pests and it includes insecticides, herbicides and bactericides. They are important components of our agricultural system since roughly one-third of agricultural crops are produced with pesticides.[8] In addition, pesticides like DDT are used to combat the spread of malaria through mosquitos. Pesticides are chemical compounds with an active ingredient, that are then mixed with other chemicals to produce specific effects or to suit the delivery method intended.[9] During manufacturing pollutants can be created from the reaction, from the filtering and purification systems, and from drying and extraction activities.[10]

Polluted pesticide manufacturing and storage sites and sites contaminated by agricultural practices investigated by the Blacksmith Institute potentially put close to 8 million people at risk at nearly 200 sites in the developing world. Pesticides are widely used throughout the world; key problem regions in the Blacksmith Institute’s database include Eastern Europe, Central and South America and South Asia; China has become the largest pesticide producer and exporter in the world.[11]

Decaying storage facilities, waste from manufacturing processes and agricultural applications cause the majority of pesticide pollution. Over 4.6 million tons of pesticides, made up of 500 different types, are sprayed on crops annually.[12] When sprayed, only 1% of pesticides end up being effectively utilized, in most instances they are distributed into the air and water.[13] Surrounding communities directly consume pesticides through inhaling of contaminated air, ingesting or bathing in contaminated waters and ingesting food unknowingly covered with pesticides. When crops are irrigated the water picks up pesticides and carries them to surrounding waterways via runoff. The breadth and reach of dispersed pesticides is alarming: studies have detected levels of DDT, lindane and aldrin in tree bark at the equator and in Greenland ice sheets and Antarctic penguins.[14]

Blacksmith previously sited pesticides as a top pollution problem, while this remains true, health impacts from exposure to pesticides are difficult to quantify. There are many and varied forms of pesticides, some are more hazardous than others and there is a limited understanding of the health impacts of some pesticides. As an example of toxic pesticides, lindane and DDT are found frequently in polluted sites in the Blacksmith Institute’s database and both are toxic to the liver and lindane is toxic to kidneys. DDT has also been defined as a probable carcinogenic in high doses and lindane as a possible carcinogenic for its link through animal studies to liver cancer. However, DDT in lower doses has not been proven to cause cancer and is still used to combat mosquitos in developing countries because of the overwhelming positive upside to reducing the incidence of malaria.

The technology and resources are available to remediate legacy pesticide storage sites and prevent exposure from manufacturing processes. Education and investment in newer manufacturing technologies could help prevent many instances of pollution. Currently, there are several international agreements and treaties that advance the safe management of pesticides. For example, the U.S., EU and 90 other countries signed the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants, a UN treaty, in May 2001. The Stockholm Convention compels countries to reduce or prohibit production, use or release of 12 persistent organic pollutants, including several pesticides such as aldrin and DDT. In 2009, nine additional pollutants were added to the agreement, including the pesticide lindane.[15] These type of international agreements help reduce human exposure to toxic pollutants and help countries safely manage chemicals.

Uranium processing for the purpose of creating nuclear energy is a complex, multistep process that includes the mining, processing, and refining of uranium ores, which then undergo enrichment processes. The problem with uranium processing is the amount and toxicity of the waste created. However, the very complex questions of spent nuclear waste disposal are beyond the scope of Blacksmith.

There is only a small number of nuclear fuel processing sites in the Blacksmith Institute’s database, however these sites potentially put more than 1.3 million people at risk for severe health impacts. The majority of the sites are in Eastern Europe, the bulk of them located in Russia. Half of the sites are still in operation, while the other sites are legacy pollution sites that have been abandoned. Radionuclides such as uranium and cesium are the major pollutants at these sites. At the legacy pollution sites, radioactive waste was often disposed of directly into surrounding waterways, with no treatment or processing. At other sites, unintended spills or accidents released radioactive waste into the environment. Radionuclides are found in the water, soil and food chain of these contaminated areas and many serious health effects have been observed. In addition to fuel processing, mining of uranium in low- and middle-income countries frequently contributes toxic pollutants to the environment, as discussed in the mining and ore processing section of this report.

Radionuclides are naturally occurring elements that are radioactive, meaning that they have atoms with unstable nuclei. As elements or materials decay, they will emit radiation up to an end point in the decay process. Some materials decay quickly, but some, like uranium, can continue to be radioactive for millions of years. During the decay, different levels of radioactivity with different health effects can be generated. Uranium radionuclides can cause damage to kidneys and to the genetic code, which can often impact fetal development. Other radionuclides, such as radon, can lead to leukemia and decreases in white blood cell counts.

Mobile phone tracking: in support of modelling traffic-related air pollution contribution to individual exposure and its implications for public health impact assessment

“contaminated humans created contaminated feces”..

Three Categories of Pollution

Air pollution comes from sources such as vehicle emissions, industrial smokestacks, agricultural activity, and even burning yard waste. Although carbon dioxide from automobiles gets plenty of attention because of climate change concerns, the World Health Organization (WHO) lists particulate matter, specifically PM2.5, as a major health risk for humans as well. Ground-level ozone is another major health concern. A second category, water pollution, includes point source pollution, such as industrial waste or sewage, as well as non-point source pollution, such as runoff from farms, lawns and other chemically treated areas that enters water sources. Soil contamination is the third category of pollutants. Soil contamination isn’t just an agricultural issue, although herbicides and pesticides are contributors. Mining, waste disposal and industrial activities also contribute to contaminants in the soil.

Health Effects of Air Pollution

Air pollution from ground-level ozone and particulate matter have the most critical impact on those suffering from asthma or other respiratory issues. As pollutant levels rise, the entire population is subject to dangerous conditions. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports, in fact, that even minimal exposure to ozone over the course of a day inhibits lung function and causes respiratory inflammation. These issues don’t only affect the sick, young, and old. The European Environment Agency (EEA) states that air pollution also causes irritation in the eyes, nose, and throat, as well as headaches and even cardiovascular illnesses. Particulate matter is of special concern, as it may harm the nervous system and also lead to reproductive problems.

Health Effects of Water Pollution

Dirty water is every bit as harmful as dirty air. In fact, the WHO expects more deaths annually from unsafe water than from polluted urban air. Diarrhoeal disease affects those exposed to contaminated drinking water and results in 2 million deaths annually. Water pollution may cause cancer as well, due to unsafe levels of arsenic and other contaminants in drinking water. Parasitic worms in drinking water are another major health concern. The Centers for Disease Control report that 200 million people are sickened annually by parasitic infections collectively known as schistosomiasis.

Health Effects of Soil Contamination

Industrial activities, mining, waste disposal and pesticide application all contribute to soil contamination. Contaminated soil makes its way into human bodies through direct contact—by eating trace amounts of soil along with food crops or breathing dust while working with soil—or through indirect contact, when contaminants leech into the groundwater or other water sources. Arsenic, for example, is one significant soil contaminant. It causes cancer and reproductive issues, as well as damage to the skin, heart, gastrointestinal tract and liver. Exposure to heavy metals like lead and mercury leads to brain damage and coordination issues, as well as kidney damage.

Pollutants found in fish inhibit natural defense system in people

Armo Hamdoun, Ph.D., Geoffrey Chang, Ph.D.
University of California, San Diego

NIEHS grantees report that environmental pollutants found in fish reduced the effectiveness of the human body’s natural system for expelling harmful contaminants. The new information gained from this study could help improve assessment of human health risks from eating contaminated seafood.

The researchers were interested in finding out how P-glycoprotein (P-gp), a transporter protein that expels foreign chemicals from the body, could rid cells of persistent organic pollutants found in seafood. Persistent organic pollutants are hazardous, man-made chemicals that persist in the environment and bioaccumulate in animals.

The researchers conducted a biochemical analysis to better understand how P-gp proteins from humans and mice interact with persistent organic pollutants most commonly found in people and also detected in the muscle tissues of yellowfin tuna from the Gulf of Mexico. The pollutants included in the study were dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT), dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (DDE), dichlorodiphenyldichloroethane (DDD), dieldrin, endrin, three forms of polychlorinated biphenyls, and two forms of polybrominated diphenyl ethers, including the common flame retardant PBDE-100.

The researchers found that all ten persistent organic pollutants interfered with the ability of P-gp to clear toxicants from cells. The researchers also solved the structure of P-gp bound to PBDE-100, providing the first view of a pollutant binding to this transporter protein. This structural information could be used to design chemicals with better potential for elimination.

Industrial air pollution leaves magnetic waste in the brain

If you live in an urban environment, chances are you’ve got nanomagnets on the brain—literally. New research suggests that most magnetite found in the human brain, a magnetic iron oxide compound, comes from industrial air pollution. And because unusually high concentrations of magnetite are found in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease, the findings raise the specter of an alarming new environmental risk factor for this and other neurodegenerative diseases. Still, other scientists caution that the link remains speculative.

For decades, scientists have known the brain harbors magnetic particles, but most assumed that they derived naturally from the iron used in normal brain function. About 25 years ago, geophysicist Joe Kirschvink at California Institute of Technology in Pasadena detected biologically formed magnetite particles in human brains, lending evidence to their natural origin.

The problem with magnetite is that it’s toxic. It causes oxidative stress, disrupting normal cellular function and contributing to the creation of destructive free radicals—unstable molecules that can damage other important molecules. Previous work has also shown a correlation between high amounts of brain magnetite and Alzheimer’s disease, and recent studies suggest it increases the toxicity of the disease’s hallmark β amyloid plaques, clumps of protein that can interfere with cell signaling. Nothing definitively links magnetite to Alzheimer’s, but the kinds of cellular damage it can cause are consistent with what’s seen in the disease.

Physicist Barbara Maher, co-director of the Centre for Environmental Magnetism and Paleomagnetism at Lancaster University in the United Kingdom, wondered whether all the magnetite found in the brain could be traced to biological processes. As an expert in environmental magnetic particles, she knew that many, including magnetite, are prevalent in air pollution let off by power plant smokestacks.

“The paradigm until now has been that magnetite just forms naturally in the brain,” Maher says. “Given how prolific magnetite particles are in the atmosphere, I wondered if they had gained entry into the human brain.”

So Maher and a team of U.K. and Mexican scientists looked at postmortem samples of brain matter from the frontal cortexes of 37 human brains. Most came from people who lived in Mexico City, and others came from former residents of Manchester, U.K. Using a variety of high-resolution imaging techniques, the researchers examined the characteristics of the brain samples’ magnetite.

Biological magnetite usually forms in tetrahedral or octahedral shapes, but the vast majority of magnetite particles found in this study were instead round nanospheres (like the one below). The researchers detected other unexpected metallic nanoparticles in the brain samples, too: platinum, nickel, and cobalt. None of these metals occurs naturally in the brain, suggesting an environmental origin.

Black, magnetite nanospheres

These magnetite nanospheres, found in pollution from the United Kingdom’s Didcot power station, match the magnetite researchers found in human brain samples.

Barbara Maher

For Maher, the magnetite’s nanosphere shape, combined with the presence of the other metals, was a tell-tale sign. “They showed all the properties suggesting they formed in high temperatures,” she says. Those temperatures vary with the fuel being burned, but they are much higher than those of the human body. “[The nanospheres are] combustion byproducts, like what’s found in power station pollution.” Frictional heating, like what happens to a car’s brake pads, can also produce magnetite nanospheres, she adds.

The researchers found biologically formed magnetite, too, but for every one of those particles, they found at least 100 pollution-derived magnetite particles, they report today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. That comes out to millions of magnetite particles per gram of brain matter, Maher says.

At 150 nanometers or less in diameter, these magnetite nanoparticles are small enough to be inhaled through the nose and enter the brain through the olfactory bulb, Maher explains. Previous air quality studies in the United Kingdom and Mexico City have found that urban areas, especially along roadsides, have abundant airborne magnetite, she adds, providing plenty of opportunity for people to sniff these toxic nanoparticles into their brain.

Other environmental risk factors for Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases have been suggested, and it’s not clear how magnetite fits into the overall risk picture, or whether there’s an exposure threshold that’s especially dangerous. Still, the results deserve special attention from epidemiologists and air quality policymakers, Maher says. “It’s an unfortunately plausible risk factor, and it’s worth taking precautions. Policymakers have tried to account for this in their environmental regulations, but maybe those need to be revised.”

Kirschvink, the first scientist to detect biologically derived magnetite in the brain 25 years ago, is convinced that the researchers have indeed found evidence that magnetite can be introduced through air pollution. The especially high levels of magnetite found in the study’s brain samples are shocking, he says, though not necessarily surprising given that they lived and worked in industrial environments with lots of air pollution.

Still, he’s concerned that researchers found so much environmental magnetite in the brain. Such magnetite is more dangerous than biogenic versions of the particle, he says. “Once you start getting larger volumes of [environmental] magnetite, the chemical reactivity goes way up,” he says. “That nanoparticles of industrially generated magnetite are able to make their way into the brain tissues is disturbing.”

Jennifer Pocock, a neurologist at University College London, says in a statement through the independent Science Media Centre that although she agrees the evidence points to pollution-borne magnetite in the brain, more work is needed before a solid connection to Alzheimer’s can be drawn. “There needs to be a better study carried out to correlate the magnetite concentrations of patients who lived primarily in a city, for example, compared with patients living in relatively unpolluted area, and analyses of their Alzheimer’s disease brain pathology correlated with magnetite concentrations.”

Air pollution

The most common source of air pollution is the combustion of fossil fuels. This usually happens in vehicle engines and power stations. Sulfur dioxide is released if the fuel contains sulfur compounds. This gas contributes to acid rain. Lichens can be used as air pollution indicators, especially of the concentration of sulfur dioxide in the atmosphere.

Factories can cause air pollution

Lichens are plants that grow in exposed places such as rocks or tree bark. They need to be very good at absorbing water and nutrients to grow there. Rainwater contains just enough nutrients to keep them alive. Air pollutants dissolved in rainwater, especially sulfur dioxide, can damage lichens, and prevent them from growing. This makes lichens natural indicators of air pollution. For example:

  • bushy lichens need really clean air
  • leafy lichens can survive a small amount of air pollution
  • crusty lichens can survive in more polluted air.

In places where no lichens are growing, it is often a sign that the air is heavily polluted with sulfur dioxide.

Water pollution

Oil spills cause a lot of harm to the environment, both at sea and on land

Water pollution is caused by the discharge of harmful substances into rivers, lakes and seas. Many aquatic invertebrate animals cannot survive in polluted water, so their presence or absence indicates the extent to which a body of water is polluted.

Radiation effects on the human body and protection means from radiation pollution

The effects due to exposure to a large dosage of radiation for a short time .

This will lead to the damage of the bone marrow , Spleen , Digestive system , Central nervous system , The bone marrow ( responsible for the formation of red blood cells ) is the first which is affected by the radiation causing decrease in the number of red blood cells and this leads to feeling of being sick , sore throat accompanied by nausea , vertigo and diarrhea .

The effects due to exposure to a small dosage of radiation for a long time ( months or years )

The most important effects are the physical effects , the genetic effects and the cellular effects , The physical effects are the changes that appear on a living being as a result of the exposure to the radiation , The genetic effects are the changes in the sex chromosomes composition which result in abnormal birth .

The cellular effects are the changes in the cells composition which lead to destroying the cells , For instance , if the chemical composition of the hemoglobin changes , it becomes incapable of carrying oxygen .

Means of protection from radiation pollution

The measuring unit of absorbed radiation is the Rem , The maximum safe dose of nuclear radiation should not exceed 5 rem for a human in a day , You should not be exposed to the maximum safe doses of nuclear radiation ( 5 rem in one day ) .

The workers with the radioactive elements in labs and the hospitals should wear radiation protective gloves , clothes and masks , Issue laws for the nuclear stations to cool the hot water before throwing it in the seas and lakes , And some nuclear plants make the artificial lakes for themselves to throw their nuclear wastes .

Radioactive wastes should be away from underground water’s path , So , it will not be polluted , The area chosen for storing radioactive wastes should be a steady one ( not exposed to the earthquakes and the volcanoes ) and away from the animals that live in the caves .

The nuclear wastes of weak and medium radiation are surrounded by a cement layer or rocks and they are placed deep inside the ground , while the nuclear wastes of strong radiation are cooled using the water , then they are deeply buried in the ground away from inhabited areas ( so as not be injury the living being in the seas and the lakes ) .

Radiation effects on the human body and protection means from radiation pollution

The radiation pollution is the increase of the amount of radiation in the environment , The sources of radiation pollution are natural sources and artificial sources , Natural sources are represented by natural radioactive materials found on the Earth’s surface ( the radioactive elements ) and the cosmic radiation that comes from the outer space .

The artificial sources take place due to the explosion of nuclear bombs that some countries do as experiments from time to time and they take place due to the nuclear reactors , Such as the radiation pollution due to the explotion in the Russian reactor at Chernobyl , It occurs on 26 th of April 1986 as a result of an error in operation .

The explotion in the Russian reactor at Chernobyl causes the melting of reactor core led to the nuclear explosion and the release of many radioactive elements , These elements formed an atomic cloud , This polluted cloud was carried by the wind to many countries in Europe .

When the rain fell in May , It carried the radioactive elements to the Earth surface , The plants and the soil were polluted by the fallen radioactive isotopes ( elements ) , The isotopes are the atoms of the same element which contain the same number of the protons and the different number of the neutrons .

Radioactive pollution

The cows and the sheep ate these plants , Their milk products and meat were polluted by the radiation , This procedure shows how the radiation effects were transferred to the man all over the world due to Chernobyl accident .

The elements that were found in the polluted food after the Chernobyl accident are iodine and cesium isotopes , they are produced from the decay of the nuclear fuel ( Uranium – 235 ) when absorbing the neutrons .
