The world population is increasing drastically day by day.

In fact, 7.5 billion people do nothing but produce waste daily in high ratio. There are some people who prefer living zero waste life, but they are small. Highest ratio of waste consists of plastic and industrial waste. World industrialized about a century ago and from that day the rate of trash they produced is increasing.

The essentials for life are water, food and air but unfortunately because weather is changing farmers are not being able to grow food in bulk amount. That leads to the use of fertilizers. Uranium is a famous compound to use as a fertilizer. Uranium is highly radioactive too. When after some time uranium breaks down it converts into radon. radon in home is as good as whole family smoking cigarettes.
