What is Environmental Health Science, and why should you care?



what is environmental health science and why is it important imagine you have a caramel apple let's make it a peanut coated caramel apple now imagine all the ways that Apple might cause harm to someone the peanuts for instance could trigger an allergic reaction sugar in the caramel could increase your chances of developing diabetes or heart disease are the preservatives and other additives in the coating safe does the Apple contain traces of pesticides and were the farmers and neighbors exposed to these pesticides as the Apple was being grown then does the packaging the Apple came in does it contain harmful chemicals and did some of these get into the Apple was anyone exposed to dangerous stuff while the packaging was being made and for the Paranoid did the production of this caramel apple contribute to global warming and as a result increase the level of health risks around the world on the flip side though this caramel apple is dripping with carbohydrates and proteins and vitamins and other nutrients that your body needs and it's not just about you people's livelihoods and as a result of their health could well depend on you eating that Apple so should you eat the Apple without some way of making sense of the speculation about the risks and benefits the only thing you're likely to get is a headache the good news is that there's help at hand it's called environmental health science by understanding the science behind how our environment affects our health we can take some of the guesswork out of the decisions we make this is incredibly important if you're procrastinating over biting into an enticing caramel apple but it also has some bearing on one or two other issues like how can we develop safer products how can we curb the rise of lifestyle diseases or how can we benefit from the gains of technological progress without suffering the pain of unintended health impacts and as a bonus the science of what happens at the intersection between our bodies and the environment we live in is pretty cool although I could be biased on that front environmental health science reducing risk and increasing benefits so everyone can lead a healthier life

  2. Just a thought, why haven't there been any recent innovations in the environmental field in the last decade or so? Did everyone just give up? Or are we all looking in the wrong places for answers?

  3. How about the transportation process? What modes were used (i.e. trucks, trains, ships, etc.), and were the apples properly stored during transport? How were the apples cleaned after harvesting? Do the stores selling those apples offer a clean and safe place to work? How about the factory and the farm? Did the apple use any artificial coloring? What are those and what do they do to our body?

    Ahh I swear the world is out to get us!!

  4. LOL.
    Environmental Health is for a bunch of pussies.
    All of them are nothing but a bunch of weak, bat-shit crazy Libs that over think, EVERYTHING.

  5. I feel like I could show this video to my mom and she would finally understand what I am studying. I think these videos are great!
