In regards to air pollution, light pollution, and noise pollution, Cairo scores as one of the most polluted cities in Egypt. The most damaging aspect of the air pollution is the tiny particles of dust and soot that are seen throughout the city. These permeate the lung’s barriers and damage human health drastically.
Not only that, but the mix of power plants, exhaust, and manufacturing contribute to the low air quality, thus harming citizens’ health. Unfortunately, the average life expectancy in Egypt is 60 years old. This is mainly due to the pollution and toxic air that people are constantly breathing in daily (The Planetd).
