The Environment – Who Cares For It?

The Environment – Who Cares For It?

By Clifford Woods

The whole world is going green. The going green campaign is one that has taken root in all parts of the world as a result of the growing concerns of environmental degradation.

The Environment – Who Cares For It?

From social media to TV advertisements, every possible platform is being used to raise awareness on the horrifying situation we are currently in as far as the environmental care is concerned. There is cause to worry and you can find out why below:

Why Should We Care?

  • 70% of marine life risks extinction
  • By 2100, a third of all species may be extinct
  • Between 15% and 20% of global methane emission comes from farm animals
  • Over 850 million trees are chopped each year
  • 25,000 people die daily due to water contamination and shortage
  • 12,000 tons of carbon dioxide are added to the atmosphere every minute
  • 50 tons of productive soil are blown off and washed away from cropland every single minute

The list is endless and it’s safe to say that we are living in a sorry state as far as our environment is concerned.

Scientists tell us that at this rate, the ozone layer may be depleted to a point where life could be unsupported in just 200 years. This means that only microbial life will be around with higher life forms dying at a much faster rate. It’s not just plants and animals that are at threat of extinction, but the human race as well.

Why Should We Protect The Environment?
The answer for this is quite obvious; we have no other choice. The environment supports life and all components that we depend on for survival is provided via the environment. This means that our reproductive growth, development activities and civilization are all at the mercy of our environment.

Environment Care: Which Way Forward?
While talking about the problem helps, what matters most is getting a solution and we do not need to depend on our governments or celebrities to endorse environmental care. There are two key things we can do to reduce our carbon footprint and these are:

  1. Recycle: By recycling and using recyclable products, we reduce the number of landfills we have and the amount of pollution that goes into the air due to production and manufacturing. Can you believe that each ton of recycled paper actually saves 17 trees and 380 oil gallons? This just shows that we can indeed make a difference in our own small way.
  2. Become Energy Efficient: There are many ways in which we can become energy efficient. For starters, we could move to alternative forms of energy. Solar and wind energy are not only feasible, but free. Energy efficiency can be achieved just by changing several things in our lifestyles, such as the way we utilize energy, the products we use every day and even the cars we drive.

Goals that need to be met
So, anything that contaminates the air, water or other areas of the environment can diminish the quality of life as well as shorten a long life. As times go on, we are contaminating more and more of our drinking water, which is the number one resource that all animals, plants, and human beings need to continue to sustain healthy growth.

A famous advocate for environmental care once said that if we were unkind to the environment, nature would not be kind to us.

The Environment – Who Cares For It?

Answer: we all use the environment and so it is we who should care for it.

Healthy Environment and A Long Life

Healthy Environment and A Long Life

By Clifford Woods

Healthy Environment and A Long LifeIndividuals have a constant interaction with the environment. These interactions affect the quality of life, either bestowing years of healthy life or causing health problems and shorter lives. Environmental health involves controlling or preventing disease, disability, and injury related to the interactions between the environment and people.

Adverse solid waste material vastly affects the quality of life, resulting in various hindrances in living a healthy and long life, while also making the quality of life in some areas unbearable.

2020 Healthy People Environmental Health Objectives
The 2020 Healthy People Environmental Health Objectives focus on those areas that highlight some elements of environmental health. These consist of air quality outdoors; toxic substances and hazardous wastes; and ground and surface water quality, as well as other elements needed for a healthy environment that promotes a long life.

Quality of Air
When we think of the surroundings and sustainability, air quality is a natural consideration. The air quality touches numerous parts of the ecosystem globally including water, soil, wildlife, vegetation, and human life. In one-way or another, all living things depend on the air around us.

2012 Outdoor Pollution
In 2010, 3.2 million people died early from outdoor air pollution, mostly in Asia, and mostly from soot as well as other pollutants from trucks and diesel cars. This means that outdoor air pollution is now a much larger risk to health than high cholesterol and, along with obesity, is the health risk that is the fastest growing in the world, thus resulting in lack of a healthy environment nourishing quality life.

Solid and Hazardous Waste
Nearly every activity leaves behind some type of waste in the environment. Manufacturing and industrial processes create hazardous solid waste. Some of this waste has chemicals that are hazardous to people and the environment.

When these hazardous chemicals are in the environment, people become exposed to them. Exposure arises when individuals have interaction with the toxic waste, both directly and through other substances polluted with this waste. Living a healthy long life becomes a really tough task under such circumstances.

Companies Not Following Regulations
There are many companies that do not safely dispose of their toxic waste, contaminating entire communities they are located in. This results in many quality of life issues including early onset of cancers and other health problems, especially in the very young and the very old.

Ground and Surface Waters
The quality of ground and surface water possibly has the largest effect on long life – not so much in the United States, but certainly in underdeveloped countries where drinking water is polluted and babies and children often get sick and die from the quality of the water.

Surface water can become stagnant and polluted simply by not having a method to flow and take out many elements of solid waste. Often, surface water is not a good source of potable water and can harm animals, plants, and humans. In many areas of the world, water out of the ground is pumped out, so people can use it for bathing, drinking, and well as other uses in a household, industry and agriculture.

Healthy Environment and A Long LifeAdditionally, groundwater often reaches the surface through other pathways that are natural such as springs. Groundwater that is contaminated affects the health of everything when they bathe or drink water that is contaminated or when they eat anything that has been negatively affected by contamination of groundwater. The dream of a healthy environment is simply not possible without better quality water.

Goals that need to be met
So, anything that contaminates the air, water or other areas of the environment can diminish the quality of life as well as shorten a long life. As times go on, we are contaminating more and more of our drinking water, which is the number one resource that all animals, plants, and human beings need to continue to sustain healthy growth.

Health Issues and a Clean Environment

Health Issues and a Clean Environment

By Clifford Woods

Health Issues and a Clean Environment

The term clean environment is somewhat vague and can be interpreted in many ways. A clean environment is not only necessary for aesthetic pleasure, but is essential in sustaining human health as well.
The most widely known health impacts of the environment can be attributed to factors like pollution, climate change, ozone depletion, land degradation and the obvious loss of biodiversity. It is such factors that bring about the correlation between health issues and a clean environment.

Why look at environment and health?
There is increasing awareness that our health and the environment in which we live are closely linked, and in 2006 the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that 24% of the global burden of disease was due to modifiable environmental factors. This growing awareness is reflected in recent health and environmental initiatives from governments and other organizations.

A lot has been said about the health issues brought about by poor indoor and outdoor quality, lack of sanitation, the use of hazardous chemicals and poor water quality as well. These are all factors that directly affect human health and are as a result of our poor efforts at maintaining and creating a clean environment.

Many blame the sorry state of the environment on the growing population, the projected increase from 6.8 billion to 9.2 billion by the 2050 means that we should expect worse days to come. This link between resource utilization and population is easy to follow, but is largely due to our lifestyles.

There is simply too much carbon dioxide production and this is all easily traced from sources, such as cars, detergents, pesticides, manufacturing and of course, the receding water levels.

Health and the Environment

  • While there are efforts to improve the environment, it is still shocking that preventable ailments and premature deaths still occur globally due an unclean environment and here’s proof:
  • 3 million children lose their lives every year due to diarrhea, which is brought about by unclean water and poor sanitation
  • Malaria still claims close to 3 million lives yearly
  • Acute poisoning from pesticides effects between 3.5 and 5 million people in developing countries
  • About 4 million children lose their lives to respiratory infections many of which are linked to poor indoor and outdoor air quality

While it’s clear that many of these health issues affect those in developing countries, environmental threats are everywhere and industrialization is now the major threat to a clean environment. Industrial pollution is now the leading cause of air pollution and toxic waste. In fact, statistics show that respiratory conditions, such as asthma, are becoming more prevalent in the developed world mainly due to environmental factors.

Environmental conditions that affect human health are manageable and even preventable with better environmental care and practices. A clean environment is not just the responsibility of your government, but falls upon us all. There are many advantages to having a clean environment and some of these include:

  • Less communicable diseases
  • Enhanced quality of life
  • Better food quality
  • Clean energy for future generations and more

Health and the environment affect us all, but it is the poor who are most affected and especially the children and women. While the health issues that have been brought about by global changes are quite easy to identify, many of us ignore them unless we are directly infected or affected.

Human health has always undergone threats from natural phenomena like draught, fire, flooding and others. This is however, being worsened by poor environmental management. Remember that good health and a clean environment coexist.

Fighting Microbes with Microbes | The Scientist Magazine®

Like humans, with their complement of microbes that aid in everything from immune responses to nutrition, plants rely on a vast array of bacteria and fungi for health and defense. Over the last decade, research has revealed many new functional aspects of the crosstalk between human-associated microbes and human cells, but plant biologists are only beginning to scratch the surface of the often surprising ways that soil microbiota impact plants, from underground fungus-wired alarm systems to soil bacteria that can trigger defensive plant behavior or even act as a sort of vaccine. But despite these benefits, microbes are still primarily thought of as harbingers of disease……

Effective And Natural Pet Health Considerations

Effective And Natural Pet Health Considerations

By Clifford Woods

People that own an animal are faced with a tremendous amount of responsibility in being able to contend with their health. Animals are heavily dependent on their owners for their necessary and daily levels of well-being which are quite similar to humans in regard to being preventative, in avoiding major medical concerns. People focused on this effort should learn a few natural methods of maintaining a high degree of pet health throughout the life of the animal.

The industry of animal care and health products is actually quite comprehensive in what owners are able to shop for and utilize. Many owners discover that the products used on animals are filled with substances that are associated with being harmful on many levels and are actually avoided by humans. This concern is often what leads many owners to consider what is available to them for the sake of their animal for a more natural approach to wellness.Effective and Natural Pet Health Considerations

People considering these things are often not too sure of where to even begin their efforts. The newness that surrounds an all natural wellness approach has led to a vast amount of information that is readily available and can be difficult to sort through at times. Learning the most effective techniques helps any owner keep their pet as happy and healthy as possible.

Consumers learn that one of the most initial techniques in this process is maintaining a holistic and balanced diet for their animals. Animals are much like humans in that they get out of their bodies what is put into them. Good health requires a diet consisting of natural products and ingredients. Clearly reading all labels prior to making a purchase is all that is required for this effort.

Keeping the animal well groomed at all times is another effective and simple approach to take note of. The hair and nails of the pet are an integral source of wellness, as they are known to become dirty over time, which can create unique health issues. Ensuring that basic grooming processes are completed is effective in avoiding any unnecessary complication.

Maintaining a happy environment for the pet is also an integral phase of this process. Animals are highly susceptible to stress and changes in their surroundings which can create unnecessary strain on their immune systems and general well being. Keeping the home environment as calm and safe as possible helps the animal feel an enhanced sense of wellness.

Another effective and natural approach to wellness is ensuring the animal receives regular exercise. Taking them for walks or interacting with them in any kind of physical manner possible helps them exercise and keep their heart rates up. This is much the same as with human beings in that weight control and mental well being efforts are much more effective with physical activity.

Natural pet health is also achieved by ensuring that fleas and ticks are removed when present and are prevented when possible. There are now quite a few products available to owners that help ensure that the hair is kept as well guarded against many sorts of pests. Keeping the home clean and avoiding areas where ticks and fleas are commonly present is another effective and natural approach toward prevention.
