E-Waste: Rising Health Hazards In Children Globally
It’s a widely known fact that the e-waste of developed countries gets dumped in third-world countries on an enormous scale. This practice has been creating several issues for the population that lives near those dumping sites in developing countries, especially children.
China is the largest dumping site in the world, receiving most of the waste through illegal trade from developed nations. A study conducted in Guiyu, China, regarding health hazards caused by dumped e-waste concluded that children who live near these dumping sites have significantly larger impurities of lead in their blood as compared to others due to lead inhalation from polluted air and ingestion of lead-contaminated food. The lead damages the brain, disturbs the nervous system, causes developmental issues, and weakens the immune system and overall strength.
Besides lead, another highly toxic chemical, cadmium, was found in the urine of children living close to dumping sites in Ghana. Such alarming facts warn the world to take a step toward improvement as it is the need of the hour, and not doing so can really ruin the future we are all trying so hard to develop.
