Thailand has recently made the switch from being an agricultural nation to an industrialized one. With that shift comes pollution of all sorts. Recently the Thai government has called for an increase in industrialized production, which has many local communities wondering how the air they breathe will be affected. With Thailand having a warm and humid climate, air pollution tends to linger, especially around Bangkok. But its not just air pollution that has communities concerned, it is also Hazardous Waste and Heavy Metal Pollution that affects the land and streams, ultimately affecting the overall health of the population.
