Does Environmental Pollution Cause Cancer?

People have accepted cancer as part of life. If you are someone that has accepted it and called it chance that you either get it or you don’t then I have something to share with you. Cancer is not something that takes you by chance; it takes you because your body is weak and in that weakened state is where it has the opportunity to inhabit your body, spreading all over and killing you slowly. There are many people in the medical profession that have been working nonstop on finding the cure. Is there a cure for Cancer? Yes there is, and it is not what you think.

The only cure for any disease and illness is your body, that’s it. Your body has the ability to cure anything that comes along, all you need to do is provide it with the right tools and you can overcome anything. There is no doctor and no drug that can cure, once you have an understanding of this you can get on the road to healing yourself. Beginning with understanding of where the disease comes from can help you find the right tools to aid your body in its healing.

Environmental pollution is becoming a real big problem; we are making our world sick and all its inhabitants sick along with it. Most diseases and illnesses start with a polluted body that gets weak overtime, slipping into an acidic state where diseases like cancer can live and spread. An alkaline state is having your body high in oxygen where cancer cannot survive; it needs an acidic body to inhabit. So how can you balance your body to make it an alkaline state? It is simple, by eliminating the pollutions inside your body. Continue reading “Does Environmental Pollution Cause Cancer?”

The Expanding Field of Environmental Health Sciences

Environmental Health Sciences can be defined as the assessment, evaluation and control of chemical, physical and biological hazards in order to protect public health. The sanitary revolution began in the late 1800s when it was determined that basic environmental sanitation and hygiene were necessary to prevent communicable diseases. Sewage disposal and water quality control were necessary to prevent diseases like cholera.

Today environmental health science is concerned with more global issues due to expanding populations. Such issues are: the pandemic flu and West Nile Virus. Also, global warming and ozone depletion are probably the two major global environmental health issues today, but yet the most controversial. The environmental health scientist must be well prepared to evaluate such controversial issues, as the ramifications do affect public health.

With globalization and exponential advancement in technology, the environmental health scientist must have broad knowledge of health sciences, not just sewage disposal and water quality control. An advanced degree in public health (MPH) provides the necessary general background as well as specific environmental health science knowledge.

Solving Environmental Health Problems

Global warming, unsafe drinking water, poor air quality inside and outside and contaminated food supplies, those are just some of the big environmental health problems we are currently experiencing. These problems may seem very overwhelming, it may seem inevitable and unavoidable, but it is us who have all the power to prevent or fix these problems. It is us who have all the power to decrease pollution, limit our exposure, and most importantly, strengthen our bodies and environmental systems in order to resist contamination.

Decrease pollution: Try to improve your quality of life by decreasing your contribution to pollution. A good example would be to turn down the thermostat during winter time; doing so will decrease carbon dioxide emissions and also improve the quality of indoor air.

Using HVAC (Heating Ventilating & Air Conditioning ) on high levels will redistribute contaminants inside a building. To avoid using HVACs try and wear appropriate clothing for the temperature. For example, instead of turning up the heater during cold days, just wear a thick jacket in order to save electricity; you won’t just save electricity, but your body’s immune system will be strengthened and it will be trained to live in rhythm with nature.

Safe pesticides and cleaners: While it is recommended to avoid pesticides completely, if you should use them, use biodegradable and safe pesticides. When it comes to cleaning agents, you should also use biodegradable and safe cleaning agents. In cleaning your house, it is best to limit the use of chemicals to prevent contaminants from getting inside. Biodegradable products will also keep your water supplies safe for drinking.
