Apart from particulate matter, Delhi air also has formaldehyde and volatile organic compound which are equally dangerous
Delhi-based scientist Amol Bahl told Firstpost that apart from particulate matter Delhi air also contains formaldehyde and volatile organic compound which are equally dangerous. They are caused due to smog which can cause respiratory distress and disorders, intestinal disharmony, skin infection, vision impairment etc. He says that measures aimed at reducing particulate matter in the air are not going to be enough. He adds that Delhi needs a solution to this problem too.
