Every organism depends on the environment. But day by day the pollution increases due to various causative factors which release a number of toxins. These toxins damage the whole ecosystem and impact on the human health. The present study helps to know the toxins produced from the various sources and the effects on human health. This helps to protect the environment for sustainable development. Everyone should help to reduce the waste to protect the environment.
