Kabul air pollution a major health risk
 Environmental pollution is a dilemma that every year by coming of winter season the Kabul city is covered by a layer of smoke and dust. The increasing number of population, the excessive availability of vehicles, presence of factories, lack of electricity, the use of generators that exhaust much smoke and use of coal mines are the main causes of air pollution in Kabul.
The National Environmental Protection Agency says that the density of suspended particulate of Kabul air sometimes reaches to 500 microns per cubic meter, while more than 150 micrograms are considered as dangerous.
Along with suspended particles, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, plumbum, and Ozone are considered as another factors for air pollution in Kabul. Suspended particles in the air have a negative impact on humans, animals, and the environment, and it reflects a total of 30% of the sun’s rays, and makes the sun not to shine directly.
Based on environmental experts’ research, the coal ash is more harmful than consumption of coal; this is while most Kabul city residents are using coal for heating their houses.
According to scientists in the field of medical research, twenty percent of cancers around the world are caused by harmful gas that is exists in the space.
Air pollution and harmful gas in the air also bring up asthma and heart diseases, strokes, premature mortality, mental illness and neurology, and maternal problems.
In the past seventeen years, the government has failed to provide an alternative to wood and coal for residents of Kabul city to use instead of contaminated fuel from power and gas.
If population density exists like this, then we do not think we will have a healthy environment for living in the near future, the problem is that when a city develops in an unplanned way, the in charged authorities in this section cannot move in parallel with population density.
At present, the Kabul city has six million population, according to government officials based on criteria, the Kabul city doesn’t have the capacity of more than one and a half million people.
70 percent of Kabul city has been built in an unplanned manner, and these areas are deprived of urban facilities. Pollution and the presence of garbage in Kabul have turned the environment into a crisis, along with other concerns, including security, immigration and unemployment.
The garbage on some of the capital’s roads has grown so much that it creates trouble for the traffic. The reason for the municipality is that each year the population increases in Kabul, but the number of employees and the budget is steady. So, people cooperation with Kabul municipality is a must in keeping clean the city. 
In the conclusion, both the people and the government are guilty of polluting the air and existence of garbage. Therefore, the government should try its best to improve the city’s situation and people as well pay attention to the culture of urbanization in their lives.
