Hyderabad: “There are many environmental issues in India. Air pollution, water pollution, garbage and pollution of the natural environment are all challenges for India. Nature is also causing some drastic effects in India” Dr. V Venugopal, Former Director, RC & I Group, Board of Research in Nuclear Science, Mumbai said.
He interacted with School of Science, GITAM Deemed to be University, Hyderabad students on Wednesday. He expressed unhappiness that the people of India have no control over the environment. Waterborne diseases are caused by water that is contaminated by human and animal urine and faeces that contain pathogenic microorganisms, that’s why our average age is limited to 64 years only, whereas in the USA it is 85 years.
“Radiation is everywhere including in minerals in the soil that emit alpha and beta particles as well as some gamma rays. Sunlight also has ionising ultraviolet radiation. Non-ionising radiation is mostly harmless” while answering a questing on mobile radiation he told.
