Vehicular Pollution
by: Harsh

Increased vehicular traffic, haphazard urban settlements and poor roads lead to frequent traffic snarls and road accidents as also vehicular pollution, which has assumed alarming proportions. It is estimated that nearly 40,000 people succumb to air pollution every year in major cities of India. High-level emissions of smoke and poisonous gases cause global warming and depletion of the ozone layer, affecting the weather pattern.

Summers are warmer and prolonged. Poisonous particulate matter in the air leads to respiratory and eye-related problems. Even a rise in coronary cases linked to an increase in pollution levels, was reported. The very first measure to counter this is to change our life styles. Radical and urgent steps need to be taken such as ban on the plying of very old vehicles, starting pooling systems in private cars, adopting zero waste system.

Thus, it is imperative that pollution control norms are implemented and defaulters booked.

Say Goodbye to Junk Food
by: Kailash

A new craze among teenagers is an inclination towards fast food. However, its consumption in high quantities can create disorders in the body and lead to obesity. Fast food is high in fat content. Their taste, more than nutrition, is what lures youngsters to these foods. If the quantity and quality are not within the desired limits, the extra fat is stored in the body tissues.

So, improving eating habits is necessary for good health. Fiber-rich diets help maintain brain and body health because fibre content is required for good digestion and for keeping the metabolism healthy. So, parents must regulate the eating habits of their children. School authorities should also monitor the sale of junk food at the school canteens and school campus.
