Question and answer
Q: Describe how the enviroment might affect an individual with dementia
A: Toxic air pollutants can have serious effects on human health and the environment. Human exposure to these pollutants can include short-term (acute) and long-term (chronic) effects. [ [ Many factors can affect how different toxic air pollutants affect human health, including the quantity to which a person is exposed, the duration and frequency of the exposure, the toxicity of the pollutant, and
the person's overall health and level of resistance or susceptibility. Short-term exposures can include effects such as eye irritation, nausea, or difficulty in breathing. Long-term exposures may result in damage to the respiratory or nervous systems, birth defects, and reproductive effects. In addition, toxic air pollutants can have indirect effects on human health through deposition onto soil or into lakes and streams, potentially affecting ecological systems and, eventually, human health through consumption of contaminated food. Effects on the Environment Air pollution causes damage to plants and animals, affecting biodiversity and crop yields. Defra has a number of research projects investigating the effects of air pollution on vegetetation and ecosystems. ] ]
