Exploring Environmental Issues 1301, Dr. Marcum Test 2 review sheet CHAPTER 10 – Health and Toxicology Describe the 4 types of hazards and give examples of each. - physical: earthquakes, blizzards, volcanic eruptions, landslides, and other natural disasters, as well as UV radiation. - Chemical: natural or synthetic. - Biological: viruses, bacteria, other biological pathogens - Cultural hazards: smoking, drug use, poor diet and nutrition. Discuss the impact of diseases, and whether they are increasing or decreasing - Diseases are numerous and diverse in terms of how they occur. Influenza, heart disease, tuberculosis, malaria, cancer, etc. can all be considered diseases. I don’t know how to answer the “increasing or decreasing” question, but I would imagine that in the U.S., the risk of death from infectious diseases is probably much lower than it is in other developing countries. Describe the text’s 4 indoor health hazards? - lead: in paint and pipes. Exposure via ingestion or inhalation can cause damage to the brain, liver, kidneys, stomach, can also cause behavioral abnormalities and learning problems, anemia, hearing loss, and even death. - Asbestos: a mineral that occurs in the form of long, microscopic fibers, which can cause lung damage (including cancer). It has been used as insulator for buildings.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
