Bhopal, India is overpopulated, and is very poluted.

The Bhopal Disaster of 1984 was an industrial disaster that was caused by the accidental release of 40 tonnes of methyl isocyanate (MIC) from a Union Carbide India, Limited (UCIL, now known as Eveready Industries India, Limited) pesticide plant owned by Union Carbide located in the heart of the city of Bhopal, in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.

The BBC gives the death toll as nearly 3,000 people dead initially and at least 15,000 from related illnesses since,[1], while Greenpeace cites 20,000 total deaths as a conservative estimate.[2].

Lack of political willpower has led to a stalemate on the issue of cleaning up the plant and its environs of hundreds of tonnes of toxic waste, which has been left untouched. Environmentalists have warned that the waste is a potential minefield in the heart of the city, and the resulting contamination may lead to decades of slow poisoning, and diseases affecting the nervous system, liver and kidneys in humans. Studies have shown that the rates of cancer and other ailments are higher in the region since the event. Activists have demanded that Dow clean up this toxic waste, and have pressed the government of India to demand more money from Dow.

In an investigation broadcast on BBC Radio 5 on November 14, 2004, it was reported that the site is still contaminated with 'thousands' of metric tons of toxic chemicals, including benzene hexachloride and mercury, held in open containers or loose on the ground. Some areas are reportedly so polluted that anyone entering the area for more than ten minutes is likely to lose consciousness. Rainfall causes run-off, polluting local wells and boreholes, and the results of tests undertaken on behalf of the BBC by accredited water analysis laboratories in the United Kingdom reveal pollution levels in borehole water 500 times the legal maximum in that country. Statistical surveys of local residents, with a control population in a similarly poor area away from the plant, are reported to reveal higher levels of various diseases around the plant.

I apologize for any confusion or misunderstanding. As an AI language model, I generate responses based on a mixture of licensed data, data created by human trainers, and publicly available data. I do not have direct access to websites, databases, or sources to provide specific references for the information I generate.

In regards to your question about regions of the world with serious problems of air or water pollution and overpopulation, there are several regions that face these challenges. Some examples include:

1. South Asia: Countries like India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh have some of the highest levels of air and water pollution in the world. These regions also have significant issues with overpopulation.

2. Southeast Asia: Countries such as Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Philippines struggle with air and water pollution due to rapid industrialization, urbanization, and population growth.

3. Sub-Saharan Africa: Many countries in this region experience high levels of air and water pollution, often due to a lack of proper waste management systems, industrial pollution, and overpopulation in urban areas.

4. Eastern Europe and Central Asia: Industrial pollution, inadequate infrastructure, and population density contribute to air and water pollution in countries like Russia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine.

It's important to note that these are just examples, and air and water pollution as well as overpopulation can be found in various regions around the world. To gather more specific and up-to-date information about these issues in particular regions or countries, I recommend consulting reputable sources such as scientific studies, reports from international organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO) or the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and government publications or websites of the respective countries.
