Soil pollution appear when pollutants, toxic chemicals or contaminants in the soil exists in high concentrations to be of danger to plants, animals, humans and absolutely, the soil itself. Arable land is turning to desert and becoming non-arable at ever-increasing rates, due largely in part to global warming and agricultural fertilizers and pesticides, lessening the hope that we can feed our booming population. Within 40 years, there will be over 2 billion more people, which is the equivalent of adding another China and India. The unnecessary use of chemicals such as pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and fertilizers is one of the leading factors that causes soil pollution by increasing its saltiness making it unfit for crop bearing adversely affecting the microorganism found in soil, causing the soil to lose its fertility and resulting in the loss of minerals present in the soil, thus causing soil pollution and killing off more than just the intended pest. Soil pollution can have several harmful effects on ecosystems and human, plants and animal health. The unfavorable effects of soil pollution may happen from direct communication with polluted soil or from contact with other resources, such as water or food which has been grown on or come in direct contact with the polluted soil. Human; humans who are valnureable to soil pollutants are more likely to have cancer than those who are not.
It can also cause melancholy of the central nervous system, headaches, eye irritation and skin rash. Environment; soil pollution naturally cause to air pollution by releasing compounds into the atmosphere, and can lead to water pollution if toxic chemicals leach into underground. Animals; soil pollution can have affects on the metabolism of microorganism in a bad way, which can destroy some layers of the food chain and have negative effects on predator animal species.

We should tutor ourselves on the cause and effects of soil pollution and the solutions to stop it, to reduce and avert soil pollution. We can find an end for soil pollution by reuse and recycle, give less waste to succor soil pollution. We may buy glasses and other containers that are reusable instead of getting rid of paper and plastic regularly. To minimize or lower the amount of garbage that is released to a landfill you should recycle paper and plastic through your local waste management company Another way of stopping it is herbicide, pesticide and fertilizer. Pesticides are substances that kill undesirable pests and insects, while herbicides are chemicals used to damage undesireable plants.
Although fertilizers give nutrients to plants to help them grow, it includes heavy metals which can harm animals. Minimizing the use of or finding natural alternatives to toxic substances can succor avoid soil pollution.
