Diwali, one of the most beautifully celebrated festivals of Hindus is comprised of lights, sweets and firecrackers. In the evening of this festival day, that smell of burning crackers will make you realize the essence because Firecrackers are known to be the integral part of this festival. No doubt bursting firecrackers is more than fun with following traditions. But there are risk factors associated with them which are quite dangerous. They not only can give devastating burns and injury but also pollute the air detrimentally. The world-wide use of firecrackers with their consequent deleterious effect on the air quality is widely recognized with elevated ambient air levels.
Most of the crackers contain harmful elements such as copper, cadmium, sulphur, aluminium and barium which are used to produce vibrant colors. Due to their ignition, harmful gases are produced, which get mixed in the air and remains there for a long time. As a result inhaling these emitted fumes increases the chances of Asthma and COPD attacks among patients. The pollution caused by crackers not only affects the healthy environment but also creates respiratory problems like bronchitis, laryngitis and pneumonia. This Diwali, take a healthy step towards going green and eco-friendly with an effort to make the festival of lights, pollution free by reducing use of crackers.
