Basic Aspects of Environmental Health

Water Quality “ As many as 80% of all disease in the world are associated with unsafe water or poor environmental hygiene (Hurskainen in Lankinen, 1994)”. Diagram (USGS, 2008)

Occupational Health Pollutants - chemicals or matter that contaminate various environmental media such as air, soil, water, plants and animals, and have the potential to cause harm to human health or the environment. Toxicants - pollutants with the potential to act as poisons dependent upon several variables of exposure including magnitude (concentration or dose), route (inhalation, oral or dermal) and duration (acute or chronic).

We breathe approximately 6 liters of air every minute;8,640 liters of air per day?

The total surface area of the air sacs of our lungs is as big as a tennis court?

Why is air pollution a major environmental and occupational health problem ?

Major Sources of Air Pollution Diagram (WaikatoRegional Council, 2008)

Common Air Pollutants 1. Particulates (PM 10 and PM 2.5 ) 2. Sulfur dioxide 3. Oxides of nitrogen 4. Ozone 5. Carbon monoxide 6. Volatile organic compounds (benzene) 7. Trace metals

Effects of Air Pollution Eye irritation – specific effect of photochemical oxidants, aldehydes and particulate matter Acute respiratory infection – increased risk among young children Acute bronchitis – direct irritating effects of SO2, soot and petrochemical pollution Chronic bronchitis – aggravation of cough or sputum Asthma – aggravation from respiratory irritation

Eye irritation – specific effect of photochemical oxidants, aldehydes and particulate matter

Acute respiratory infection – increased risk among young children

Acute bronchitis – direct irritating effects of SO2, soot and petrochemical pollution

Chronic bronchitis – aggravation of cough or sputum

Asthma – aggravation from respiratory irritation

Decreased lung functions Reduced exercise performance Exacerbation of symptoms with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) Headache – carbon monoxide causing more than 10% carboxyhaemoglobin Lead toxicity – add to body burden Deaths – fine particulate increasing mortality in heart and lung disease Effects of Air Pollution on Health

Decreased lung functions

Reduced exercise performance

Exacerbation of symptoms with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Headache – carbon monoxide causing more than 10% carboxyhaemoglobin

Lead toxicity – add to body burden

Deaths – fine particulate increasing mortality in heart and lung disease

RULE OF 1000 “…states that a pollutant released indoors is 1000 times more likely to reach peoples lungs than a pollutant released outdoors.” World Health Organization, 1997 In urban areas most people spend more than 70% of their time indoors at work, at home, or at school.

Environmental Health Program Environmental Sanitation It is the prevention and control of diseases by eliminating or controlling the environmental factors which may form links in disease transmission . It is the study of all factors in man’s physical environment which may exercise a deleterious effect on his health, well-being and survival.

Environmental Health Services (EHS) Water Supply Sanitation (Based on PD 856 of 1998): Level I (Point Source) – protected well or developed spring with an outlet but without a distribution system (15-25 HH; not more than 250 meters from the farthest user; 40-140 liters per minute) Level II (Communal Faucet System or Stand-Post) – system composed of reservoir, piped distribution network and communal faucets (located not more than 25 meters from the farthest house) Level III (Waterworks system or Individual House Connections)
