Air Pollution for Kids | It's AumSum Time
 
04:58
Air Pollution. Due to cutting of trees, burning of wood, burning of fossil fuels, smoke released from factories and industries, smoke released from vehicles our air is getting polluted. Due to air pollution, human beings suffer from a number of diseases like Asthma, Bronchitis, Cancer. Air pollution also affects the growth of plants. Air pollution causes damage to our beautiful historical monuments. To reduce pollution, we should take some preventive measures: Plant more trees. Avoid bursting firecrackers. Make more use of public transport. Service your vehicles regularly. Factories and power plants should be set up far from residential areas to reduce air pollution.

Difference between biological and chronological ages can predict cancer risk
 
01:25
"생물학적 나이 실제 나이보다 많으면 암 경고 신호" Every person has two ages. One is the commonly known chronological age and the other is the body's biological age. According to a new study, the gap between the two could can be used to calculate your health risks. Park Se-young has the details. The difference between a person's biological age and their chronological age appears to be a new predictor of cancer. And according to a new study, the bigger the difference, the higher your risk of getting and dying from cancer. Scientists at Northwestern University collected blood samples from 442 people between 1999 and 2013, all of whom were cancer-free at the beginning of the study. They found that people whose physical age was around six months older than their chronological age developed cancer,... while those who were two-point-two years older had little chance of surviving it. Factors that speed up the aging process include smoking, drinking, a poor diet, air pollution and toxins. The study, the first to link the discrepancy between biological and chronological age with cancer,... was published in the online journal EBioMedicine. The researchers are now studying whether people can lower their biological age through lifestyle improvements like exercise and having a healthier diet. Park Se-young, Arirang News.

5 steps to protect yourself from the effects of smog
 
01:34
Smog is one type of outdoor air pollution that can cause particular problems for people with existing health problems, including chest, lung or heart complaints. Outdoor air pollution could be responsible for 3.3 million premature deaths across the globe every year, according to recent research published in the scientific journal, Nature. Dr Gary Bolger, our Chief Medical Officer, explains how smog can affect your health and how to protect yourself. What is smog? Smog is a dense layer of stagnant air which forms near ground level when air pollution is high. It is more common in built-up cities with dense traffic or in areas near industry with high emissions. This harmful substance is created when sunlight reacts with gases, such as industrial emissions or car exhaust fumes, in the lower atmosphere. The high-pressure warm weather systems that we get on hot days tend to be slow moving, so they trap the polluted air at a low level in the atmosphere. But, although smog is associated with summer, winter smog can also occur. Cold foggy days are a particular problem as harmful gases can get trapped near the ground. Smog is made up mainly of ozone but it also contains other harmful substances, such as sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide and PM10s (small molecules which can find their way deep into our lungs). Ozone, which protects our skin from harmful UV rays when it’s high in the atmosphere, can be harmful and cause irritating health effects when it’s nearer the ground. How does smog affect your health? “Some people are more sensitive to the effects of smog and air pollution than others, including those with existing chest, lung or heart complaints. The first health signs of smog may be irritation in the throat, nose, eyes or lungs and breathing may be affected. According to Asthma UK, about two thirds of people with asthma find that pollution triggers their symptoms. High levels of pollution have been linked to an increased risk of asthma attacks and low peak-flow readings, so it’s important for asthmatics to keep their inhalers at hand during smog attacks. Environmental factors can also impact other conditions, such as fibrosing alveolitis and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). In some cities, like Beijing and New Dehli, smog is a regular and ongoing concern and for those exposed to it on a daily basis, it can be more harmful to health. The World Health Organisation recommends reducing air pollution in order to reduce stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, and chronic and acute breathing conditions. How can you protect yourself from smog? If you have respiratory issues that are affected by smog and air pollution – or simply want to protect yourself or your children from the potential health effects – here are some practical tips to help you: Keep up to date with weather forecasts and smog throughout the year. You can find a daily update on air quality at the Air Quality website. The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) also has the latest information and includes a useful colour-coded summary of the current situation in all areas of the UK. If you’re travelling and want to know about how smog might affect you in Europe, the European Environment Agency maintains an ozone map on its website. If the air quality forecast is poor, where possible, avoid the affected areas. If this is too difficult, stay indoors and keep your windows closed. Avoid exercising in smoggy conditions, particularly at midday when ground ozone levels are at their highest. Try to change the times you exercise to morning or evening (avoiding rush hour), or exercise inside. If you’re asthmatic or have COPD, carry your inhaler at all times. If you notice any rapid deterioration in your condition, consult your doctor. If you have respiratory conditions and need to travel on smoggy days, avoid congested areas where you may get stuck in traffic jams. Road junctions can be a hotbed of exhaust emissions so keep your windows closed. Airports, seaports and industrial areas also tend to have high levels of pollutants so avoid these too. If you’re walking or cycling to work, plan a route that avoids too many areas that are built up or congested. Keep your own emissions to a minimum. Avoid unnecessary car journeys in cities, don’t rev up or leave your engine running for a long time outside your home on cold days or when stuck in traffic jams.

The Most Radioactive Places on Earth
 
11:18
Who on Earth is exposed to the most ionizing radiation? Check out Audible: http://bit.ly/AudibleVe I'm filming a documentary for TV about how Uranium and radioactivity have shaped the modern world. It will be broadcast in mid-2015, details to come. The filming took me to the most radioactive places on Earth (and some places, which surprisingly aren't as radioactive as you'd think). Chernobyl and Fukushima were incredible to see as they present post-apocalyptic landscapes. I also visited nuclear power plants, research reactors, Marie Curie's institute, Einstein's apartment, nuclear medicine areas of hospitals, uranium mines, nuclear bomb sites, and interviewed numerous experts. Notes about measuring radiation: Sieverts are a measure of 'effective dose' - that means they measure the biological impact of the energy transferred to tissues from radiation. Obviously I owe a debt to the fantastic chart made by xkcd, which inspired my visual approach to this video. https://xkcd.com/radiation/ DOSES MAY VARY The level of radiation varies widely around the world depending mainly on altitude and geology (excluding nuclear accidents). Estimates of particular doses also vary. All numbers reported in this video should be taken as order of magnitude only. The most contentious claim may be that smokers receive the highest dose of ionizing radiation. This is not a whole body dose, but a dose to the lungs as specified in the video.

Lung Cancer (Small Cell Lung Carcinoma and Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma) for USMLE 2
 
29:45
Lung cancers consists of Small Cell Carcinoma, Sqamous Cell Carcinoma, Adenocarcinoma and Large Cell Carcinoma. We will be reviewing Epidemiology, Pathology Pathophysiology, Clinical Signs and Symptoms, Investigations and Treatment/Management of Lung Cancer. EPIDEMIOLOGY OF LUNG CANCER Adenocarcinoma is the most common right now and is the most common. It is the third most common cancer and is the most common cause of cancer death. RISK FACTORS OF LUNG CANCER Smoking, Asbestos, Radiation, Arsenic Chromium, Nickel. Genetics, Scar Formation (Wegeners, Fibrosis, Scleroderma) Air pollution, HIV. CLINICAL SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF LUNG CANCER Pulmonary Symptoms, most common is cough, Hemoptysis (which ca lead to asphyxia) Chest Pain (dull achy), Dyspnea (secondary to pneumonia, atelectasis, lymphatic tumor spread, pleural effusion and pneumothorax), hoarsenes (when laryngeal nerve involved), pleural effusion (serous, serosangiounous, bloody) which may be caused by metastasis into pleural fluid. Super Vena Cava Syndrome occurs when central tumor invades SVC which causes red, edematous face, prominent veins throughout the body and this is more common in small cell lung cancer. Pancoast tumor is a lung cancer located in the apex of the lungs. Pancoast tumor may lead to thoracic outlet syndrome (pain weakness in arm and hand). Horner Syndrome causes miosis, anhydrosis and ptosis (MAP) and this is more common in Non Small Cell Lung Cancer. Paraneoplastic syndromes are due to hypercalcemia (PTHrP) bone mets, calcitriol release, cytokine. SIADH causes increase water absorption leading to dilution hyponatremia, cerebral edema, anorexia, nausea vomiting. Resolves with chemo and treatment. Lambert Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome (LEMS) is a condition with auto-antibodies of the calcium channels in the Neuromuscular Junction. Proximal Muscle weakness and rising and standing. Hematologic derangements such as anemia, leukocytosis, thrombocytosis and hypercoagulability. Hypertrophic osteoarthropathy may lead to digital clubbing, periositis, Arthralgia, Cushings due to release of Ectopic ACTH. Metastasis symptoms occur when metastasis of lung cancer to liver, adrenal gland, Lung, Spine, Brain. Screen with PET-CT. INVESTIGATIONS FOR LUNG CANCER X-Ray may show a coin lesion. First step in management is to look at a previous x-ray and look for a sign of lung cancer on the old x-ray. Cytology of the sputum, bronchoscopy, and percutaneous. CT Scan and PET CT Small Cell Lung Cancer Oat cells look like small cells with little cytoplasm. All are of neuroendocrine origin (feyrter cells) on bronchus. Small Cell Lung Cancer is found central and has limited stage (Lung and 1 lymph node) Extended stage is spread beyond the lungs. Usually has early metastasis. May release ACTH, SIAD, Lambert eaton myasthenic syndrome. Adenocarcinoma Mucin and TTF-1 Positive type of Lung Cancer. Graded from low grade to high grade. Bronchoalverolar carcionma is in situ carcinoma and has better prognosis. Most common in Non-Smokers (BAC) Squamous Cell Lung Cancer Irritation of bronchus causing metaplasia, then dysplasia, then carcinoma in situ and finally lung cancer. Also associated with Keratin pearls and cavitation from central necrosis. Goes into hilar nodes and gets late metastasis. Asymptomatic and can be deteetd with sputum cytology. Large Cell Lung Cancer Lots of cytoplasm, unknown origin and is a waste basket column. Peripheral and has late metastasis and can use cancer. TREATMENT OF LUNG CANCER Small Cell Lung Cancer metastasizes early on and therefore surgery is not an option. Cisplatin, Carboplatin and vincristin is also used. Responds very well to chemotherapy. Prophylactic cranial irradiation (PCI) to prevent brain metastasis. Surgery is possible if the tumor is very small and no metastsis Non Small Cell Lung Cancer is not responsive to chemotherapy or radiotherapy so surgery is the only option.

WORLD HEALTH ORG IN BED WITH THE DEVIL
 
04:08
LONDON - What many commuters choking on smog have long suspected has finally been scientifically validated: air pollution causes lung cancer. The International Agency for Research on Cancer declared on Thursday that air pollution is a carcinogen, alongside known dangers such as asbestos, tobacco and ultraviolet radiation. The decision came after a consultation by an expert panel organized by IARC, the cancer agency of the World Health Organization, which is based in Lyon, France. "The air most people breathe has become polluted with a complicated mixture of cancer-causing substances," said Kurt Straif, head of the IARC department that evaluates carcinogens. He said the agency now considers pollution to be "the most important environmental carcinogen," ahead of second-hand cigarette and cigar smoke. IARC had previously deemed some of the components in air pollution such as diesel fumes to be carcinogens, but this is the first time it has classified air pollution in its entirety as cancer causing. The risk to the individual is low, but Straif said the main sources of pollution are widespread, including transportation, power plants, and industrial and agricultural emissions. Air pollution is a complex mixture that includes gases and particulate matter, and IARC said one of its primary risks is the fine particles that can be deposited deep in the lungs of people. "These are difficult things for the individual to avoid," he said, while observing the worrying dark clouds from nearby factories that he could see from his office window in Lyon on Wednesday. "When I walk on a street where there's heavy pollution from diesel exhaust, I try to go a bit further away," he said. "So that's something you can do."

Radon - Things You Should Know
 
03:32
Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the United States and in many places across the globe. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air people breathe. Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into homes and buildings through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Radon can even enter a building through well water. A home or building can trap radon inside and according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), nearly 1 out of every 15 homes in the United States is estimated to have an elevated radon level (4 pCi/L or more). Radon can be a problem in new or old properties and in buildings with or without basements. For most people, the greatest risk of exposure occurs in the home because that is where they spend most of their time. When people breathe air containing high levels of radon over time, they could develop lung cancer and radon is estimated to cause thousands of deaths each year in the United States alone. In fact, the U.S. Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. People who smoke and live in a home with high radon levels are at increased risk of developing lung cancer. Testing is the only way to know if radon is a risk in a home or building. Both the EPA and the Surgeon General have recommended that all homes below the third floor be tested for radon. There are professionals who specialize in radon testing and interpreting the result. Radon test kits are also available to the public. If testing indicates elevated levels of radon, there are radon reduction systems that can be installed to reduce indoor levels. New homes and buildings can even be constructed with radon-resistant features built right in. These are just a few things to know about radon.

Polluted Environments Kill 1.7 million Children Each Year
 
03:06
Polluted Environments Kill 1.7 million Children Each Year, More than 1 in 4 deaths of kids under 5 years of are due to dangerous environments. each year, environmental dangers, inclusive of indoor and outdoor air pollutants, second-hand smoke, hazardous water, lack of sanitation, and insufficient hygiene, take the lives of 1.7 million kids under 5 years, stated new WHO reports. Such unsanitary and polluted environments can cause fatal cases of diarrhea, malaria and pneumonia, the WHO stated in a report, and kill 1.7 million kids a year. WHO director-general Margaret Chan said, “A polluted environment is a deadly one specifically for young children,". "Their developing organs and immune systems, and smaller bodies and airways, make them particularly at risk of grimy air and water." Dangerous exposures can start in the mom’s womb and increase the risk of premature birth. moreover, whilst babies and pre-schoolers are exposed to indoor and outside air pollutants and second-hand smoke they have got an increased risk of pneumonia in childhood, and a lifelong increased risk of chronic respiratory diseases, such as asthma. exposure to air pollution may also increase their lifelong risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer. Risks of Chronic Respiratory Diseases, This will increase their childhood risk of pneumonia in addition to their lifelong risk of chronic respiratory diseases consisting of asthma. Air pollutants also will increase the lifelong risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer. The report also noted that during households with out get admission to to safe water and sanitation, or that are polluted with smoke from unclean fuels inclusive of coal or dung for cooking and heating, kids are at higher risk of diarrhea and pneumonia. kids are also exposed to dangerous chemicals through meals, water, air and products around them. A WHO expert on public health Maria Neira said “this was a heavy toll, each in terms of deaths and long-term contamination and disease rates. She urged governments to do more to make all places secure for kids”. investing in the removal of environmental risks to health, which includes enhancing water quality or using cleaner fuels, will result in massive health advantages.

Non Small Cell Lung Cancer Risk Factor | Risk Factor of NSCSL | What Increases Your Risk
 
10:06
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide as well as in the United States, with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) being the most frequent type. A number of things will increase your risk of developing lung cancer. Smoking cigarettes or being exposed to secondhand smoke could be a primary risk factor for the sickness. Exposure to amphibole and bound paints or chemicals may also increase your risk. Lung cancers consists of Small Cell Carcinoma, Sqamous Cell Carcinoma, Adenocarcinoma and Large Cell Carcinoma. We will be reviewing Epidemiology, Pathology Pathophysiology, Clinical Signs and Symptoms, Investigations and Treatment/Management of Lung Cancer. RISK FACTORS OF LUNG CANCER Smoking, Asbestos, Radiation, Arsenic Chromium, Nickel. Genetics, Scar Formation (Wegeners, Fibrosis, Scleroderma) Air pollution, HIV. CLINICAL SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF LUNG CANCER Pulmonary Symptoms, most common is cough, Hemoptysis (which ca lead to asphyxia) Chest Pain (dull achy), Dyspnea (secondary to pneumonia, atelectasis, lymphatic tumor spread, pleural effusion and pneumothorax), hoarsenes (when laryngeal nerve involved), pleural effusion (serous, serosangiounous, bloody) which may be caused by metastasis into pleural fluid. Super Vena Cava Syndrome occurs when central tumor invades SVC which causes red, edematous face, prominent veins throughout the body and this is more common in small cell lung cancer. Pancoast tumor is a lung cancer located in the apex of the lungs. Pancoast tumor may lead to thoracic outlet syndrome (pain weakness in arm and hand). Horner Syndrome causes miosis, anhydrosis and ptosis (MAP) and this is more common in Non Small Cell Lung Cancer. You may not notice symptoms within the early stages. Otherwise you would possibly mistake them for another ill health, like respiratory disease or a folded lung. Non-small cell lung cancer is currently the single biggest killer from cancer of any disease in the world. It's called non-small cell lung cancer to distinguish it from another rarer type of lung cancer called small cell, which behaves very differently and is treated very differently. Lung cancers consists of Small Cell Carcinoma, Sqamous Cell Carcinoma, Adenocarcinoma and Large Cell Carcinoma. We will be reviewing Epidemiology, Pathology Pathophysiology, Clinical Signs and Symptoms, Investigations and Treatment/Management of Lung Cancer. “Health” In other Language: Santé, Gesundheit,健康,Salute,स्वास्थ्य,الصحة,Saúde,Здраве,Здоровье,健康,Zdrowie,건강,Υγεία,ਸਿਹਤ,Gezondheid “Non Small Cell Lung Cancer” In other language: Cancer du poumon sans petites cellules,Nicht-kleinzelligem Lungenkrebs,非小细胞肺癌,Cancro polmonare non polmonare,फेफड़ों की छोटी कोशिकाओं में कोई कैंसर नहीं,سرطان الرئة ذو الخلايا غير الصغيرة,Câncer de pulmão de células não pequenas,Недребноклетъчен рак на белия дроб,Рак легких немелкоклеточного рака,非小細胞肺癌,Rak płuc niedrobnokomórkowy,비소 세포 폐암,Καρκίνος πνεύμονα μη μικρών ,ਨਾਨ ਸਮਾਲ ਸੈਲ ਲੰਗ ਕੈਂਸਰ, Niet Kleine Cel Longkanker,Cáncer de pulmón de células no pequeñas “Liver” in other language: Foie,Leber,,Fegato,जिगर,كبد,Fígado,Черен дроб,печень,肝,Wątroba,간,Συκώτι,ਜਿਗਰ,Lever,Hígado ♦Music♦ Creative Commons Attribution license (reuse allowed) Road Less Travelled - Soft Piano Music - Royalty Free - Jonny Easton https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuMIXD3UPaA OR The End of Summer According to Sprites -- Dubstep/Chillstep -- Royalty Free MusicTeknoAXE's Royalty Free Music ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVh_xM78aK8) Creative Commons Attribution license (reuse allowed) ♦Follow Me On ♦ Google Plus: https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/111198389848762915180 Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/EmmaBella02/health-happyou/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/HealthHappyou/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/HHappyou Tumbler: https://www.tumblr.com/blog/healthhappyou Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/user/Health_Happyou/ DISCLAIMER: We Provide All Info for General Purpose Only So It should NOT be taken as professional advice.

Canada's Toxic Chemical Valley (Part 1/2)

Check out part 2/2 here: http://bit.ly/Chemical-Valley-2 The first thing you notice about Sarnia, Ontario, is the smell: a potent mix of gasoline, melting asphalt, and the occasional trace of rotten egg. Shortly after my arrival I already felt unpleasantly high and dizzy, like I wasn't getting enough air. Maybe this had something to do with the bouquet of smokestacks in the southern part of town that, all day every day, belch fumes and orange flares like something out of a Blade Runner-esque dystopia. Sarnia is home to more than 60 refineries and chemical plants that produce gasoline, synthetic rubbers, and other materials that the world's industries require to create the commercial products we know and love. The city's most prominent and profitable attraction is an area about the size of 100 city blocks known as the Chemical Valley, where 40 percent of Canada's chemical industry can be found packed together like a noxious megalopolis. According to a 2011 report by the World Health Organization, Sarnia's air is the most polluted air in Canada. There are more toxic air pollutants billowing out of smokestacks here than in all of the provinces of New Brunswick or Manitoba.

Toxic tensions in the heart of 'Cancer Alley' l channel NEWS 24H google+:https://plus.google.com/u/0/ twitter:https://twitter.com/buidinhdu1990 facebook:https://www.facebook.com/?ref=tn_tnmn youtube:https://www.youtube.com/dashboard?o=U Toxic tensions in the heart of 'Cancer Alley'.LAPLACE, Louisiana (CNN) - Geraldine Watkins sits at the kitchen table in her ranch home, rattling off the names of friends and relatives in her small Louisiana town who've died of cancer over the last 40 years. Her grandchildren suffer an array of ailments, from skin conditions to breathing problems. Her 7-year-old great-grandson's breathing is so labored, she says, "you can feel his heart trying to jump out of his chest." Watkins lives in the shadow of a plant that spews chloroprene -- a chemical so toxic the Environmental Protection Agency says nearby residents face the highest risk in the country of developing cancer from air toxins. "You gotta live here to try to breathe the air, drink the water, see the children so sick and watch people die," Watkins says. "Industry is wonderful to have, but if it's killing the people in the area that they live in, what good is industry?" Watkins is a worthy advocate, a 76-year-old great-grandmother challenging those in power. Her words are often punctuated by folksy aphorisms: "Nothing beats a failure but a try," she says. And try she will.A town wants answers The town of LaPlace, Louisiana, lies along the Mississippi River, a stone's throw from Lake Pontchartrain and the Maurepas Swamp. It sits in the heart of an area that's become known by locals as "Cancer Alley," a vast industrial stretch between New Orleans and Baton Rouge where dozens of petrochemical plants dot the landscape. One sign posted by a local advocacy group warns the town's 29,000 residents that they are "more likely to get cancer due to chloroprene air emissions." The warning refers to the Denka Performance Elastomer plant at the edge of town, where a vast network of pipes and valves stand testament to industry. The facility looms over Fifth Ward Elementary School, where children run around the playground oblivious to the toxic emissions in the air. The plant, formerly operated by DuPont, employs more than 200 workers and has been in this spot for nearly 50 years. The facility plays a vital manufacturing role as the nation's only producer of neoprene, a synthetic rubber that's found in everything from gaskets and hoses to fishing waders and wetsuits. But it also emits 99% of the nation's chloroprene pollution, according to the EPA. Chloroprene is the main chemical used in the production of neoprene. In 2010, the EPA determined that chloroprene is "likely carcinogenic to humans," meaning studies showed it likely causes cancer in people. The EPA has not set a legal limit for chloroprene emissions. But according to a May 2016 memo, federal regulators said the "upper limit of acceptability" for cancer risk was an annual average of 0.2 micrograms of chloroprene per cubic meter. Anything more than that would increase the risk of developing cancer, the EPA determined. Residents say they were largely unaware of the 2010 EPA finding. But in December 2015, the EPA updated its National Air Toxics Assessment map, which showed an elevated risk of cancer around the plant -- prompting Denka to enter into an agreement with the state of Louisiana to voluntarily reduce chloroprene emissions by 85%. Tensions in the community mounted after Denka representatives and state environmental officials briefed the public on the agreement. The town hall meetings may have been intended to reassure residents, but they only seemed to create more questions: Residents wondered why they weren't warned years before and said their complaints have been ignored. While Denka agreed to the voluntary 85% reduction, it disputes the EPA's 0.2 recommendation and insists its own research shows no connection between chloroprene and cancer. Denka is a Japanese chemical company that bought the plant from DuPont in 2015. Denka officials say the EPA based its cancer estimate on faulty science and have demanded that the EPA issue a correction. The company commissioned and submitted a study that argued chloroprene's classification should be changed from "likely carcinogenic to humans" to "possibly carcinogenic" -- and that the 0.2 guideline should be changed to 31.2, more than 150 times the EPA's recommendation. An EPA spokesman told CNN the agency is reviewing the company's complaint but indicated the science behind the agency's findings was solid. In the spring of 2016, the EPA installed six canisters near the plant -- including at the hospital, levee and two local schools -- to collect air samples. Every three days, the air quality is tested. The daily readings have been jarring -- 10 times, 50 times and 100 times the EPA's "upper limit of acceptability" for cancer risk. On one occasion last November, the reading spiked at the levee and tested 700 times..

Asphalt Fumes & Occupational Exposure Concerns
 
03:41
Asphalt as it is referred to in the United States or bitumen, as it is called in many other parts of the world, is found in natural deposits or can be obtained by refining crude oil. The primary use of asphalt is for road construction where it is mixed with aggregate particles. It is also commonly used to seal flat roofs and in waterproofing products such as roof felt and shingles. According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), over a half-million workers are exposed to fumes from asphalt. Health effects from exposure to asphalt fumes include headache, skin rash, sensitization, fatigue, reduced appetite, throat and eye irritation, cough and skin cancer. The agency goes on to state that exposure to asphalt fumes can cause serious injury and permanent damage and that workers that may be exposed to asphalt fumes need to be aware of the potential hazards in their work environment. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) reports that the complex chemical composition of asphalt makes it difficult to identify the specific component(s) responsible for adverse health effects observed in exposed workers. Known carcinogens have been found in asphalt fumes generated at work sites. Observations of acute irritation in workers from airborne and dermal exposures to asphalt fumes and aerosols and the potential for chronic health effects, including cancer, warrant continued diligence in the control of exposures. NIOSH also reports that asphalt fumes generated at high temperatures are probably more likely to generate carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) than fumes generated at lower temperatures. Today, OSHA does not have a standard for asphalt fumes although it proposed a permissible exposure limit (PEL) in 1992. Controlling exposures to asphalt fumes can be done through such functions as engineering controls, administrative actions and personal protective equipment (PPE). These are just a few things to know about occupational exposure concerns to asphalt fumes.

Why doctors don't talk about the dangers of radon in schools? EPA estimates that about 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year in the U.S. are radon-related. Exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. Radon is an odorless, tasteless and invisible gas produced by the decay of naturally occurring uranium in soil and water. Radon is a form of ionizing radiation and a proven carcinogen. Lung cancer is the only known effect on human health from exposure to radon in air.

Screen shot of Chinese website Weibo, with post saying pollution reached a record high on Tuesday and asking government to take action 13. Zoom in to screen shot of photograph posted on Weibo showing the Forbidden Palace in Beijing covered in pollution haze STORYLINE Smog levels in the Chinese capital were "beyond index" on Tuesday according to the US Embassy's tracking of Beijing's air pollution levels. Visibility was down to 200 metres and some people wore masks on the streets. Beijing is frequently cloaked in a yellow haze, often almost obscuring buildings that are only a couple of blocks away. A Twitter feed set up by the US Embassy in Beijing reports air quality as measured by a monitor on the embassy roof and publishes it online every hour. The reading of 501.0 on Tuesday was classified as "beyond index". Those readings include levels of fine particulate matter, or PM2.5 - a type of pollution that Beijing authorities also measure but do not release to the public. Sometimes seen as soot or smoke, PM2.5 is tiny particulate matter - less than 2.5 micrometres in diameter, or approximately 1/30th the average width of a human hair - that can result from the burning of fuels in vehicles, power plants and agriculture. Breathing such fine particles causes respiratory problems and can lead to death. China's environmental ministry has said it will factor PM2.5 into national air quality standards, but not until 2016. Last week, however, state media announced that the bureau in charge of monitoring China's frequently smog-choked capital will release more detailed reports, following a public outcry over the hazards of fine particle pollution. Beijing's decision to publish the data appeared aimed at appeasing residents' anger over the pollution and a lack of government transparency. Beijing's official air quality index regularly records the pollution as "light" - a reading at odds with what many people experience.

Report: EPA Power Plant Rules May Aid Health
 
00:40
As the Obama administration readies its proposal for limiting carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants, new research says strong rules could offer health benefits by reducing air pollutants. Tough carbon rules could reduce the risk of heart attacks, lung cancer, asthma and other health problems by limiting pollutants that contribute to soot, acid rain and ozone, according to a study Tuesday by researchers at Harvard and Syracuse universities. Slated to be announced June 2, the controversial rules will be a key component of President Obama's plan to fight climate change. http://rssfeeds.usatoday.com/~r/usatoday-NewsTopStories/~3/FkkSw10QbJg/ http://www.wochit.com

H8 Radon

H8 Radon What is radon? Where does radon come from? Source: https://www.epa.gov/radon According to the United States EPA, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers and causes about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year in the USA. Radon gas comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon gas can be found all over the U.S. It can get into any type of building, homes, offices, and schools and result in a high indoor radon level. But you and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time. H8 Radon Need more info? Contact: Alex Tishbi Direct: 310.709.0500 Testing for radon is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon. EPA also recommends testing in schools. A Citizen's Guide to Radon: https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2016-12/documents/2016_a_citizens_guide_to_radon.pdf This is a radon link for real estate brokers and agents: https://www.epa.gov/radon/how-protect-your-family-radon-when-buying-newly-built-home You can always buy a radon kit and test your home for under $20. You can find radon testing kits all over the place. Your local hardware store like home depot should carry one. If you don't want to drive around and look for one, you can always order your radon gas testing kit online. Just search "Radon Kit" and you'll see a ton of advertising for it. Usually 1 out of 15 homes has high levels of radon. If you found out that your home has high levels of radon, it won't be the end of the world. High levels of radon in any house or building is fixable. You can hire a radon mitigation company to come and fix it for you. They usually will install a radon mitigation system or a radon reduction system and that will take care of everything.

Idle Free Schools
 
07:11
Why is it bad to idle vehicles? Idling vehicles contribute to air pollution and emit air toxins, which are pollutants known or suspected to cause cancer or other serious health effects. Monitoring at schools has shown elevated levels of benzene, formaldehyde, acetaldehyde and other air toxics during the afternoon hour coinciding with parents picking up their children. Children’s lungs are still developing, and when they are exposed to elevated levels of these pollutants, children have an increased risk of developing asthma, respiratory problems and other adverse health effects. Limiting a vehicle’s idling time can dramatically reduce these pollutants and children’s exposure to them.

Drop in the Bucket - Radon

Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers according to the U.S. EPA. Radon kills 21,000 people every year in the United States. Test! Fix! Save a Live! http://www.indoorsafety.com/ http://epa.gov/radon/ Need more info? Contact: Alex Tishbi Direct: 310.709.0500 What is radon? According to U.S. EPA, radon is estimated to cause about 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year. That's because when you breathe air containing radon, you can get lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high. Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon can be found all over the U.S. It can get into any type of building — homes, offices, and schools — and result in a high indoor radon level. But you and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time. Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon.Radon-resistant construction techniques can be effective in preventing radon entry. When installed properly and completely, these simple and inexpensive techniques can help reduce indoor radon levels in homes. In addition, installing them at the time of construction makes it easier and less expensive to reduce radon levels further if these passive techniques don't reduce radon levels to below 4 pCi/L. Every new home should be tested after occupancy, even if it was built radon-resistant. Every new home should be tested after occupancy, even if it was built radon-resistant.

Jed Fahey, Sc.D. on Isothiocyanates, the Nrf2 Pathway, Moringa & Sulforaphane Supplementation
 
02:28:22
Dr. Jed W. Fahey is a nutritional biochemist with broad training and extensive background in plant physiology, human nutrition, phytochemistry and nutritional biochemistry. He is the director of the Cullman Chemoprotection Center at Johns Hopkins. The reason I've asked him to join us today, in particular, however, is because he has been researching isothiocyanates like sulforaphane for over 20 years and is an exceptional expert in this arena. Dr. Fahey and his colleagues have been, in a big way, at the absolute center of what is a staggering amount of research on these very powerful compounds. There is hardly a topic which we can discuss in which he doesn't have an anecdote about a study he was involved in, or, in some cases, tribal knowledge that may not even be published but is nonetheless interesting and an important part of the story that is unique to his particular vantage point. ▶︎ If you have not seen my previous, extremely in-depth video on sulforaphane, a very important isothiocyanate, please do so: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zz4YVJ4aRfg -- Find out more about Dr. Fahey and the Cullman Chemoprotection Center: ▶︎ The Cullman Chemoprotection Center Website: http://www.chemoprotectioncenter.org/ ▶︎ The Cullman Chemoprotection Center Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/chemoprotectioncenter/ ▶︎ Dr. Fahey's Website: http://www.jedfahey.com/ ▶︎ Dr. Fahey on Twitter: http://twitter.com/jedosan --- Follow FoundMyFitness elsewhere: ▶︎ iTunes Podcast: http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/foundmyfitness/id818198322 ▶︎ Twitter: http://twitter.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/foundmyfitness ▶︎ Email newsletter: http://www.foundmyfitness.com/?sendme=lifestyle-heuristic
