Pollution is everywhere. It is one of the world’s biggest environmental battles that destroys wildlife and causes health problems to millions of people. It takes different forms of energy like heat, noise and light. Everything can be polluted like
air, water and even the population itself. China, Russia, India and Peru are among the countries that are considered to be the worst polluted countries in the world.
In the Philippines, pollution is considered in different cities but with different kinds.

Baguio City is considered to be the most polluted city in the Philippines due to air pollution.
It is considered a summer tourist spot in the country due to its cool weather. The result is air pollution due to the vehicle emission that private and public transportation produce which the tourist used to visit the place. Smog, the result of smoke and fog, is what makes the air polluted in the Baguio City since it produces fog because of the cool weather and the smoke coming from the transportation.
Marilao and Meycauyan Bulacan is considered polluted because of the river system in this area. There is a dumping site situated in this city for lead smelters, metal refiners and area tanneries. The chemical contaminant that the waste material produces causes pollution in the river.
