It has been proved beyond doubt that in almost all the large cities of the world, air pollution is a major problem for the physical and mental health of the people. Air pollution can cause significant morbidity and mortality along with deficits in pulmonary function and cardiovascular and neurobehavioral effects of living species including human population are affected. The mobile source emissions are estimated to comprise the single largest source of risk of air toxin from air borne toxic pollutants. The primary pollutants generally present in the exhaust emissions are nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HC), lead (Pb) and dark smokes. In the present study, health survey has been carried out to substantiate the hypothesis that correlation between air pollution and respiratory health exists.
