How does medical waste hurt the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    Most types of medical waste are treated through incineration. But the problem is, this procedure produces tons of mercury, which causes learning disabilities in children, and dioxin, a potent, cancer-causing chemical. There are other alternatives but incineration seems to be the most convenient method as it gets rid of the medical waste completely. Sterilizing is also an option but after that they still end up in our landfills.
