Chemical contamination could lead to one of the worst environmental risks to humanity, but knowledge of the problem is still unevenly distributed worldwide. This review consists of risks associated with human exposure to a chemical pollutant depend on the degree of exposure and the chemical nature of the pollutant. Our knowledge of the scope of pollutants on human health and their hazards. Although some pollution control measures are in place, they are frequently not implemented at the rate required to prevent both acute and chronic consequences on human health today and in the decades to come. Increased global awareness and scientific examination of the whole scope of chemical risk are urgently needed. This review covers numerous aspects that may have negative impacts on human health in polluted places, with a focus on variables influencing the behaviour of pollutants.
