Health is affected by air, water and soil pollution. In cities it would be more air pollution and in salty lands it would be soil pollution. In areas near a river or lake still recovering from waste being dumped in it, or in a river or stream near a farm as chemicals to fertilise the soil for the plants will be washed away into this stream which can cause illnesses to people who swim in it and cause damage to the fish and the animals within the stream and to the animals who feed from them.
