Asked in Health
Are there any health problems associated with acid rain?
Acid rain in large amounts can produce health issues, however a average acid rain fall does not contain enough acid to really cause any damage or health issues. In order to have enough acid in the rain to cause noticeable health issues, there must be at the least a foot of rain on the ground. Now even if that much rain is common where you live, acid rain is very rare. Even when it is acid rain there is no real way to tell the difference between the two, unless you have all the proper scientific equipment to test it right then and there.
