Correct Answer - Option 1 : Lungs

The correct answer is Lungs.

  • Persons in asbestos factories are affected by air pollution, the most affected part of their body is the lungs.

  •  Breathing in air pollutants can irritate airways and may cause shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, asthma episodes, and chest pain.
    • Exposure to air pollution puts someone at risk for lung cancer, heart attacks, stroke, and in extreme cases, premature death.
    • Air pollution is the cause and aggravating factor of many respiratory diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) (11,12), asthma (12,13), and lung cancer (14,15).
    • Air pollution can also cause long-term damage to people's nerves, brain, kidneys, liver, and other organs. Some scientists suspect air pollutants cause birth defects.
