Chapter 1 Homework Assignment #1 PCH 259 Introduction: Environment at Risk 1. Define Environmental Health. Environmental Health is the practice of preventing diseases that are linked to food, water and air contaminants. 2. Based on the reading, what would you consider to be a determinant of health? List three (3) and give an example for each. The determinants of health are population, pollution and poverty. An example for population is that the population mainly in impoverished nations are growing rapidly making resources limited which can affect a person’s health. An example for pollution is air pollution from fossil fuels dispersing greenhouses gases into the atmosphere causing Global Warming. As a result of this, it will increase the amount of flying insects that carry diseases like West Nile or Ebola. Lastly, an example of poverty is a group of people who are living in cheaper, older building and being exposed to poisonous lead paint.

    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.
