Then, the companies do not need to export those expensive parts from other countries very much. Conclusion The amount of Illegal dumping increases in Japan because the recycling fee is high cost and such dumping causes to environmental pollution. The government should strengthen the recycling law. Also, the recycling its self has small effect for reducing CO2 emission , but important thing is that people try to reduce amount of wastes by being aware of recycling.
This treatment could have saved the lives of many people in a disaster. Secondly, not only did the medical staff lack knowledge of an antidote, but also they “did not have any specific training in the effects of gas-related accidents, especially those caused by methyl isocyanate." (Bhopal, 167) The company ... ... middle of paper ... ...egligence on all fronts allowed for the opportunity of the worst-case scenario to take place. The people of Bhopal had a right to a clean environment and air. Union Carbide knew the critical information about the gas and had a professional responsibility to uphold its obligation by not releasing toxic gas into the atmosphere and by making sure their employees followed all procedures.
The smoking of cigarettes leads to many serious and fatal health problems and because of those health problems caused by smoking in the United States smoking is the most preventable cause of death. Due to the four thousand plus chemicals in a cigarette the amount of illnesses that can come from smoking are endless. From lung cancer to heart diseases people are losing their loved ones because of the easy access to cigarettes. By allowing the sale of these toxic cigarettes people are able to easily subject themselves to a death that will come on average thirteen to fourteen years sooner than someone who is able to control themselves from purchasing something that is in front of their face anytime they go into a gas station or simply to get a carton of eggs from the grocery store. By the government allowing the purchase of cigarettes they are allowing people to slowly kill themselves.
Because secondhand smoke is as bad as smoking cigarettes, the government should have a stricter ban or prohibition toward smoking in public. Every four minutes someone will die due to smoking related diseases. Secondhand smoke causes almost 50,000 deaths in adult nonsmokers in the United States each year, including approximately 3,400 from lung cancer and 22,700-69,600 from heart disease (Secondhand Smoke - American Lung Association). Carbon monoxide, tar and nicotine can cause immense damage to the way the body functions including damage to one’s body and prevent it from functioning healthily. Many are not aware that secondhand smokers are more likely prone to getting diseases as the substances in secondhand smoke can confuse and deteriorate cells in the body – 3000 nonsmoking adult die of diseases by exposure to second hand smoke.
The carbon monoxide you inhale from tobacco smoke replaces oxygen in your blood cells, robbing your heart, brain and the rest of your body of this life-giving element. Smoking also deadens your senses of taste and smell so food is not as good as it once was. A burning cigarette is a health risk to everyone in the same room. The scientific evidence of tobacco hazards is strongest for smokers themselves. However, there is compelling evidence that regular exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke threatens the health of those who do not smoke.
Bhopal Have you ever experienced such a life changing event that people all around the world hear about, and you've only dreamt about a disaster so bad? In 1984 a gas reaction happened in Bhopal, India that caused thousands upon thousands of deaths. Many of the deaths happened during the wee hours of the morning when people were sleeping, so they had no chance to live. The Bhopal, India incident, during which a gas/chemical leak from a Union Carbide plant killed thousands, would not have occurred if the company had taken the same safety measures required in first world countries. On December 3, 1984 a horrible accident occurred in the petrochemical capital of Central India,(Wolpert 152).
It seems benzene will remain a chemical pillar of American infrastructure, despite its effects on the human body. Education is the best tool that an industrial professional or even the general public can use to avoid serious health risks. Just as silicon can often replace carbon in manufacturing given its similar molecular structure, maybe a viable replacement for benzene will one day rid industries of its health
This, in turn, restricts the capacity of blood to carry oxygen throughout the body suffocating it. A human body deprived of oxygen becomes very ill and cannot function correctly. Not only has carbon monoxide been accredited for taking life involuntarily but unfortunately also finds itself as an alternative method for suicide (Doug).

Acquiring an understanding of how CO works and how it can be prevented is the only way to be safe from harm.
After awhile people might notice that they don’t have quite as much energy as before. And after five or ten years, make note that quite a few of the townspeople seemed to be getting ill with one thing or another. The thousands of toxins that are produced everyday by cigarette smoke and other businesses cause this. The National Institute on Drug Abuse has estimated that in the U.S. alone, smoking is responsible for approximately 350,000 deaths per year (“Smoking Cessation”). If a law would be passed banning public smoking then the amount of toxins being put into the air could be limited to the ones who need it for business rather than pol... ... middle of paper ... ...onal Cancer Institute, “ Smoking either way causes cancer or some type of heart and lung problems in the future.” For many years to come smoking in public will be a issue discussed by many hopefully something can be done to fix the issue that benefits both parties.
It also depends on what kind of duties you have as a firefighter; because those with the highest level of carbon monoxide in their system were a part of the direct attack and those with the least were the fire starters (U.S. Department of Agriculture 3).
