Children, the elderly and pregnant woman are most susceptible to the adverse effects of groundwater contamination. An example of this is Baby Blue syndrome which is caused by high levels of nitrates in drinking water. This syndrome can lead to heart disorders in young children and will require surgery for treatment. In addition, if our groundwater is contaminated then our crops might also run the risk of contamination. Our crops would be less healthy and less plentiful and could potentially have a negative effect on our quality of
Cadmium in sludge-derived fertilizer can be absorbed by crops; if ingested in sufficient amounts, the metal can cause an acute diarrhoeal disorder and liver and kidney damage. The hazardous nature of inorganic substances such as mercury, arsenic, and lead has long been known or strongly suspected. Noise Pollution, adverse effects of noise in our living and working environment. Noise is, by definition, unwanted sound. It may be annoying, it may interfere with speech communication, leisure, or relaxation, and, at very high levels which may occur at work or during certain noisy leisure activities, it may result in hearing loss by causing damage to the hair-cells in the cochlea in the inner ear.
But it can bind to hemoglobin better, so it takes the place of oxygen in hemoglobin and makes the body oxygen supply insufficient. Other chemicals include tar, hydrogen cyanide, metals and radioactive compounds which can cause cancers and interfere with the functions of respiratory system. Therefore, smoking is like harming all the body components gradually. Smoking tobacco can cause various cancers including lungs, mouth, and other cancers, and also other various diseases. It also causes irritation and inflammation of various parts of the body including bronchi, alveoli and digestive tract.
They can attack enzymes and proteins causing disruption of normal cell activities, which can produce a reaction of destruction and are caused when your body breaks down food, is exposed to smoke from tobacco, or from radiation and also could cause cancer, heart disease, and arthritis like conditions. Too much damage to the cells that occur in the blood vessels may cause arteries to harden and thicken, eventually causing heart attacks or strokes. Free radicals are caused when your body breaks down food, exposed to smoke from tobacco or from radiation and also could cause cancer, heart disease, and arthritis like conditions. The body usually can keep the free-radicals under control, despi... ... middle of paper ... ...will decrease, we tested our hypotheses by checking the vitamin levels in oranges and lemons. We took samples from oranges and lemons cooked some of the samples and left some of them in their raw state.
There are many different substances being used in personal care products to be aware of that can have negative effects on the consumers health. One substance, organ siloxanes, is one ingredient used in personal care products that is causing concern due to its potential toxic behavior to human health. Another is Phthalates, which is a group of endocrine-disrupting chemicals. Phthalates are most commonly found in nail polishes and synthetic fragrances. Exposure to phthalate has been linked to early puberty and can be a risk factor for breast cancer later on in life in women.
Some examples of harmful toxins with difficult names include diethanolamine (DEA), formaldehyde, glucocorticoids, and triethanolamine (TEA). We are exposed to toxic chemicals in many ways. We may breathe them in as sprays and powders, swallow chemicals on our lips and, even rub them on our skin. According to a team of researchers who conducted a study on the relationship between exposure to phthalates and DNA damage on human sperm, “cosmetics frequently contain enhancers that allow ingredients to penetrate deeper into the skin. Studies have found health problems in people exposed to common fragrance and sunscreen ingredients, including increased risk of sperm damage, feminization of the male reproductive system and low birth weight in girls” (Duty et al.
An example of the effect is receding gums. A receding gum line exposes the tooth roots and increases your risk of developing a sensitivity to hot and cold, or tooth decay in these unprotected areas. Additionally, smoking can also contribute to bad breath, stains in the teeth and a build-up of tartar on the teeth. Consequently, tobacco which contains many harmful chemicals damages human beings’ health day by day. Although people are aware of the bad effects of smoking, they still smoke for one reason or another.
These harmful chemicals are catalysts for many types of cancer. Some of these toxins include arsenic, carbon monoxide, and lead. When directly consumed, these chemicals are very pernicious, so it is obvious that they can cause diseases like ... ... middle of paper ... ...lp/about-cancer/causes-symptoms/causes/ diet-causing-cancer>.

Plastic may be causing harm to our bodies. However, more research is needed before plastic can be determined if it should be significantly reduced plastic use. In September of 2008, baby bottles were found to host a dangerous amount of Bisphenol A and cause birth defects in humans and animals alike. The chemical is linked with both heart disease and diabetes that were both linked in cups, containers, and water bottles. The Food and Drug Administration has reported that BPA is safe in small concentrations, but could also still be a risk with a high amount of plastic products.
When we use these types of fuel, they produce not only smoke, but they also put by-products into the atmosphere. The cumulative effect of air pollution poses a grave threat to humans and the environment. “Chemical reactions involving air pollutants can create acidic compounds which can cause harm to vegetation and buildings. Sometimes, when an air pollutant, such as sulfuric acid combines with the water droplets that make up clouds, the water droplets become acidic, forming acid rain.” (Today, 2010) When acid rain falls is bad for trees, and can harm animals and other
