High industry areas could have issues with higher pollution problems with the air and water. High electrical plants might also cause emf problems for those that are sensitive to high electrical wave forms. There would also be more traffic in these areas and therefore, more potential for increased problems with pollution.

What industry? If the industry emits a lot of pollutants into the ground, air or water, that can cause problems. Other types of industries may have different problems/risks (think nuclear power plants, for example). If the industry overworks and underpays the employees that can cause problems from a dissatisfied, unhappy or ill workforce, which impacts all who come in contact with them, etc.
