Our lungs and eyes along with skin and gastrointestinal systems have direct contact with environmental pollution. Lungs bear the brunt either directly or indirectly through skin–lung and gut–lung axis. According to a report on burden of diseases compiled by National Commission of Macroeconomics and Health of the Government of India, 2005, chronic respiratory diseases affects 65 million people. A 2015 study across the country showed that 50.5% of diseases are due to respiratory symptoms in all age groups (Sundeep Salvi, Res. Resp. Med., 2015, V(4)). © 2022, Current Science.
