An infectious agent B. A neurotoxin C. PCB D. A pesticide Answer:  B - Of the top 20 environmental pollutants reported to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), nearly three- quarters were known or suspected neurotoxins, that is, toxins that destroy nerves or nervous tissue. 2.

Environmental epidemiology C. Secondary prevention D. Toxicology Answer:  B - By examining specific populations or communities exposed to different ambient environments, environmental  epidemiology seeks to clarify the relationship between physical, chemical, and biological factors and human health. 3.

Coordinate interventions with the physician only C. Examine criteria that include only the client’s immediate response D. Include outcome measures that mitigate and eliminate the environmental factors Answer:  D - If the community health nurse suspects that a client's health problem is being influenced by environmental  factors, the nurse should follow the nursing process and note the environmental aspects of the problem in every step  of the nursing process. For instance, in goal setting, the nurse would include outcome measures that mitigate and  eliminate the environmental factors. 5.
