These diseases, such as eczema, hay fever, and asthma, would be caused by pollutants in the air and buildings that build up in the human body after many years of exposure. It seems as if the people surveyed were not very happy about their situation either – they blame the government for using toxic materials in children’s goods, and slacking air pollution rules. The only good news is that the Korean government has designated 11 hospitals to begin research on these environment-related diseases for the next 3 years. Let’s hope they find a solution.
