It's a fact that day by day population in Mexico is increasing, and this
causes many social, economic, and pollution problems. The main purpose of this
essay is to discuss the three main effects of overpopulation in Mexico.
The first major effect of overpopulation in Mexico is unemployment. First of
all, there aren't enough sources of jobs in Mexico, so only the most prepared
people get a job. This is a great social and economic problem because people who
don't work get frustrated and can't support their families.
The second effect of overpopulation in Mexico is the low quality of public
services. Natural resources, like water or food, aren't enough for so many
people, so there is a lot of thirst and hunger in the country. Also, the level
of education is quite low because there are a lot of children or young people
who must study, and there are not enough schools or teachers. The same happens
with health; hospitals aren't capable of giving attention to all the people who
need it, so there are a lot of diseases.
The most significant effect of overpopulation in Mexico is the high level of
pollution. Because a great number of people must go by car to their jobs at the
same time, amazing traffic jams are caused. This, together with the noise caused
by cars and people, causes a great amount of pollution. Also, every day people
generate a lot of trash, and this pollutes both water and ground.
All the effects of over population that I have said make a cycle. For
example, pollution causes diseases, and these diseases can't be attended because
of the insufficient hospitals. That's why I think that we must find a way to
organize all the people who live in this country, so we could live in a better
environment and have a better quality of life. We must also learn to take care
of the natural resources and think of those who are coming. If we don't stop
spending our resources and polluting, the next generations will have a huge
problem. Finally, I think that Mexico needs to generate more sources of jobs, so
everybody can work and satisfy their needs.
