Description

Many scholars would support that Chinas expedited globalization has wrought the rapid development of industry. While industrial growth certainly has economic and political advantages, it is also inevitably matched with extreme environmental challenges. Beyond the damage to our planet, these challenges yield another problem: the global burden of disease is rising exponentially in China, posing major health risks for people breathing the air, drinking the water, and using public facilities.
