What kind of pollution hurts humans the most?

    That is a good question, but it is difficult to say. Some types of pollution come in short durations with high concentration and cause poisoning or other symptoms in humans. When something happens suddenly, it is known as an “acute” problem. However, low levels of pollution that are present over a long period of time can lead to “chronic” problems. It is more difficult to link chronic health problems directly to pollutants, but air pollution is a major source of both chronic and acute problems. However, this does not necessarily mean that it hurts humans the most. Other types of pollution such as water pollution can also cause both chronic and acute problems. Since the chronic effects are difficult to measure, we can’t say with certainty that one type of pollution is worse than the other.
