physical activity and a history of other diseases such as kidney disease. In addition to these risk factors,
hypertension can also be caused by particulate sources of air pollution. Air pollution has an impact on health
including respiratory disorders, heart disease, cancer of various organs, reproductive disorders and hypertension.
