Question and answer
Identify and describe 3 environmental health hazards that cause ill health,crises,and or disasters within your community within south africa and globally.include evidence that is current of the
identified issues.use graphs,statistics etc to show evidence of your information.
If one includes tobacco smoke as an environmental hazard then it probably represents the single biggest known airborne chemical risk to health, whether measured in terms of death rates or ill-health (from lung cancer, [ other lung disease such as chronic bronchitis and emphysema, and disease of the heart, especially, and of blood vessels and other parts of the body). To a much lesser degree of
risk, these adverse effects apply to non-smokers exposed passively to sidestream tobacco smoke. General airborne pollution arises from a variety of causes but can usefully be subdivided into pollution from combustion or from other sources. The image shows the silhouette of a power station - an important source of airborne products of combustion. Large scale industrial releases with serious acute effects are fortunately rare but you might recollect some events such as in Bhopal (India). Various smaller scale events occur such as leaks from road tankers, or fires in warehouses and factories.Special local environmental exposures can arise for example in communities exposed to drifting pesticide sprays containing say, organophosphates. Some natural phenomena such as volcanic eruptions can present serious risks to health. Fortunately they are rare but can be catastrophic. ]
