Hi Riya,

Interesting question and line of interests.

But before I answer your question, would like to know,
How environmentally conscious are you???
Do you think of ways of improving the environment???
Do you think health issues are linked via the environment???
Does Nature and its issues probe you to get into research for their improvement???
