Pollution during The Industrial Revolution
Transcript of Pollution during The Industrial Revolution
air pollution created a deadly cloud of smoke and fog known as smog,this caused deaths in thousands due to respiratory diseases
the industries were releasing dangerous gases into the air
a result of this was The Great Smog of London in 1952,more than 4,000 people were killed
acid rain discovered in the 1850's was one of the resulting problems from coal-powered plants.
air pollution also caused the same fatal diseases as water pollution such as chlorea, typhoid,and typhus
water pollution intensified during the industrial revolution
rivers that passed through urban areas became a receptacle for human waste products
factories began releasing pollutants directly into rivers and streams
by the 1850's inhabitants began experiencing epidemics of chlorea and typhoid
chlorea-an infectious and often fatal bacterial disease of the small intestine, tipically contracted from infected water supplies and causing severe vomiting and diarrhea
typhoid-an infectious bacterial fever with an eruption of red spots on the chest and abdomen and severe intestinal irritation
