Rising contaminants have been found and identified in organisms and numerous environmental components in current decades of major advances in the analysis and detection of trace pollutants; nonetheless, the harmful consequences of environmental exposure on the general population are quite considerable. It is basically unknown. To address concerns regarding potential adverse health impacts for the general population, this study presents the conclusions of the complete epidemiological literature and representative case reports connected to emerging contaminants and humans. Perfluorinated chemicals, water disinfection by-products, gasoline additives, man-made nanomaterials, human and veterinary medications, and ultraviolet filters are some of the most common contaminants, according to research, these have infrequent but statistically significant associations with cancer and reproductive hazards. Because of the inconsistencies in certain research findings and the small series of articles available, it is not yet able to infer significant findings on the relationship between the detrimental impact on health and the level of exposure. We present evidence that is ambiguous and extensive, and we urge that ongoing cohort studies be done in the future to investigate the relationship between human health result and developing environmental contaminants.
