Delhiites Might Face Infertility Problems And The Reason Is An Eye-Opener

"If you don't kill pollution it will kill you." 

This statement is certainly on its way to a city in India.

We are talking about Delhi, which has been enveloped in a thick layer of smog. The city has been facing an emergency since Diwali, and it has witnessed the worst air quality in the past 17 years. The pollution index in Delhi has crossed the safety limit multiplying by 15 times, for which certain quick measures were taken. Schools were closed down for three days, and the Badarpur power plant was also asked to shut.

People said that the smog left their eyes watering and mouth tasting bitter, with other adverse effects on the respiratory system. But this is all that we have been knowing forever, adding to our surprise, it has been discovered that air pollution can also affect the sexual health of a person.
