Newborn babies, kids, and older adults are impacted most and face breathing problems. The depletion of the ozone layer causes difficulty in breathing. Many people burn fossil fuels. Rotten garbage mixes in the air and causes deadly diseases in human beings. 2 million to 8.9 million people have heart problems and severe chronic disorders.
