The major sources of air pollution are transportation engines, power and heat generation, industrial processes, and the burning of solid waste. Air pollution is a major concern of new civilized world, which has a serious toxicological impact on human health and the environment. It has a number of different emission sources, but motor.

Environ Health Perspect ; (1): A (Open access). A little history of air pollution. Air pollution is a very old phenomenon. It has been manifesting itself since antiquity. Seneca, 61 years before Christ, complained about the polluted air in Rome. Pollution is partly the result of human concentrations in cities and regions, accompanied by numerous burns of various materials for domestic.
