critically discuss 10 ways in which the environmental health hazards can impact negatively on one's health
Weegy: The following environmental factors impact your health in multiple ways: *Mold and dust can exacerbate and contribute to the development of chronic conditions like asthma and allergies. *Secondhand smoke in homes and workplaces poses a significant [ risk; in fact, the National Cancer Institute states that of the chemicals identified in secondhand smoke, more than 50 have been found to cause cancer. *Poorly ventilated fireplaces and stoves contribute to your pulmonary disease risk. *Common construction materials such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) can cause asthma, and formaldehyde (also employed in homebuilding) can cause eye, nose, and throat irritation; wheezing and coughing; fatigue; skin rash; severe allergic reactions and possibly cancer. *Water containing lead, often caused by the lead pipes used in older construction, can cause serious damage to the brain, kidneys, nervous system, and red blood cells. *Groundwater contamination occurs when man-made products such as gasoline, oil, road salts and chemicals get into the groundwater and cause it to become unsafe and unfit for human use. * Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical often used in plastic water bottles, appears to mimic the effects of estrogen, interfering with hormone levels and increasing human risk for reproductive disorders, including cancer. *Chronic noise can trigger the body's stress response, which can lead to disorders as serious as heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke. *A Purdue University study indicates that children living in noisy homes display less cognitive growth, delayed language skills, increased anxiety, and impaired resilience. *Sound pollution can lessen productivity and decrease quality of life. ] (More)

Discuss in a paragraph of 150 words ways in which one can take responsibility to provide safe and healthy living environment.
Weegy: The quality of our environment affects all of us no matter where we live. The environment is our home. If it is not healthy, we will not be healthy either. When people abuse the environment, this affects us all. [ [ If water is polluted, if the air is full of smoke and chemicals, if food contains poisons, people (and plants and animals) get sick. All people also have a responsibility to protect and use the environment in a way that will protect it for us, our children, and our grandchildren. Many people do not understand why we need to worry about the environment. They think people's needs and environmental needs cannot both be looked after, and that people are more important than the environment. They say that our major aim must be creating economic growth and jobs, and that the green (environmental) agenda must take second place. Some people feel hurt or insulted when others show concern over endangered species like rhinos when children do not have enough to eat. But, the environment is really the whole planet on which we live. Everything (winds, trees, animals, insects, people, etc) forms part of the living system of earth. For example, trees are important because they make oxygen which helps us breathe. If too many trees are cut down for firewood or furniture this reduces the amount of oxygen going into the earth's system. Over time, this can have a very bad effect on people and animals. These are some examples of what is happening to the earth because it has been exploited and not protected: weather patterns have changed, there are more droughts and more floods, the temperature is rising and most important, the ozone layer that should protect us from the dangerous rays of the sun has been damaged and does not work as effectively as it did before. So, it is important to protect the environment from being exploited and it is the reason why people now talk about the term sustainable development. ] ] (More)
