California Air Quality Rules to Tighten After Cancer Risk Estimate Triples
Factories and oil refineries in southern California face a new crackdown on their emissions of air toxins, after experts in the state reported that breathing in pollution carries almost three times the risk of causing cancer than was previously thought, especially for children and babies. Air quality regulators covering almost 11,000 square miles that are inhabited by almost 17 million people, including residents of Los Angeles, have approved new rules designed to help protect the public from poisons such as arsenic, benzene and heavy metals in industrial emissions. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jun/07/california-air-quality-rules-cancer-risk-estimate-triples http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

7 Super Toxic U.S. Sites
Let's face it: Humans are pretty messy. Industrial processes like mining and manufacturing are important parts of keeping civilization going, but they all impact the environment. Sometimes that impact is particularly big and messy, leaving behind hazardous waste that can take years or even decades to clean up.

WHO: 92% of The World Is Breathing In Excessive Air Pollution
The World Health Organization says nearly everyone in the world is breathing in polluted air.... A new WHO air quality model shows 92 percent of the world's population lives in places where the air quality exceeds WHO limits. WHO officials say 90 percent of air-pollution related deaths happen in low or middle income countries. WHO hopes to lowers those dangerous air pollution levels through BreatheLife. BreatheLife is a worldwide communications campaign aimed at increasing public awareness of air pollution and its risks.

Household air pollution Commission
Read the full Commission on TheLancet.com: http://bit.ly/tlrmhap Household air pollution, caused by the use of plant-based or coal fuel for cooking, heating, and lighting, is putting nearly three billion people worldwide at risk of ill health and early death, according to a new Commission, published by The Lancet Respiratory Medicine. A third of the world’s population use plant-based solid fuels such as wood or charcoal, or coal, to cook, heat, and light their homes, primarily in Asia and Africa. These smoky, dirty fuels are often used in an open fire or simple stove, resulting in high levels of household air pollution in poorly ventilated homes. The Commission estimates that around 600-800 million families worldwide are at increased risk of illnesses such as respiratory tract infections, pneumonia, COPD, asthma, and lung cancer.

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.

New Health Risks of Living Near an Airport Discovered
People who live near airports often say they've adapted to the noise levels, but new research points to evidence that avoiding some heath risks may be out of their control. People who live near airports often say they've adapted to the noise levels, but new research points to evidence that avoiding some heath risks may be out of their control. The study involved 3.6 million people who live by London's Heathrow Airport. Findings suggest that some of the residents are at a 10 to 20 percent greater risk of heart disease, stroke and circulatory disease. Their research involved examining data culled in 2001 by the Civil Aviation Authority. The noise-level reports covered 12 boroughs and 9 districts in and around London. After making adjustments for many other potential disease-inducing factors such as ethnicity, smoking, and air pollution, they determined that the 2% who lived in the loudest areas were at the greatest risk. While noise is the obvious suspect, both the researchers and outside experts concurred that it's not likely the source of trouble, but probably plays a role. It was noted that sudden loud noises are found to raise blood pressure and stress levels. The researchers do not attest their research is exhaustive. It is felt that the findings warrant a deeper look into how airport design and location impacts health.

Even Low Levels of Air Pollution Cause Kidney Damage
Breathing dirty air not only cause bad cough, this in turn, increase the risk of kidney disease or kidney failure, so another reason to care about air pollution the findings paint a grim image of how living in polluted areas can affect all aspects of human health. It’s no surprise that breathing dirty air can harm the lungs, its effects on the kidneys are a bit less clear. The tiny particles in air pollution can pass through our lungs and enter our bloodstream, they travel until they finally reach the kidneys. Our body’s main filters, kidneys sift these particles out of the blood, but too much exposure to these harmful pollutants can take its toll, really there is no safe level for air pollution, even the lowest levels can do harm, it’s difficult to set a safe level of air pollution exposure. If we do additional research we are finding indications that this line is not low enough, we need to set standards for safety, but health data is increasingly showing that there is no line to safely be behind.

Lung Cancer (Small Cell Lung Carcinoma and Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma) for USMLE 2
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.

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..

Air pollution contributes to kidney disorders
"대기오염 심할수록 신장 질환 발생 위험도 커져" New research suggests it's not just our lungs that are hurt by pollution in the air -- but that severe air pollution could increase the risk of kidney disorders and, ultimately, kidney failure. Medical scientists at Washington University, in collaboration with researchers at the Veterans Affairs’ Clinical (Epi--demi--ology) Epidemiology Center,... published the data in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology last week. The data was collected over a period of eight and a half years from 2004... through an evaluation of more than 2-and-a-half million people. Although diabetes and high blood pressure are the biggest causes of kidney diseases,... the study shows that even relatively low levels of particulate matter concentrations can adversely affect the kidneys.

5 steps to protect yourself from the effects of smog
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.

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."

Polluted Environments Kill 1.7 million Children Each Year
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.

Difference between biological and chronological ages can predict cancer risk
"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.

Willowbrook residents voice concerns over cancer risks at community meeting | Loungtastic
WILLOWBROOK, Ill. -- On Wednesday night, experts tried to easy fears, but for the people who live in Willowbrook, it's simple: They don't want a cancer-causing chemical in their community. Hundreds showed up at community meeting to learn more about a chemical a sterilization services company is emitting into the air in Willowbrook. The company is Sterigenics and the chemical in question is ethylene oxide, which experts say is a carcinogen. "This is no longer just a suspected carcinogen but on the weight of the evidence it's a known human carcinogen joining asbestos, cigarette smoke and very few other chemicals as known human carcinogens," Dr. Peter Ottis, University of Illinois at Chicago, said. The meeting began with CDC and EPA experts discussing rigorous testing at the site, but these concerned residents didn't want to hear it.

Its residents suffer from health conditions, such as cancer, and mortality rates significantly higher than the U.S. national average due to disregard of human health and life by local oil refineries & chemical plants and the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) refusal to regulate airborne dioxin. In 2001, a division of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency found levels of the dioxin compound vinyl chloride in the air in Mossville at concentrations 100 times what is permitted by federal law, and ethylene dichloride at 20 times -- but the report from the U.S. health agency, ATSDR, concluded, "The source of dioxin exposures in the Mossville residents is not known."

Cry of a River. The trouble with India’s toilets and drinking water.
More films about India: https://rtd.rt.com/tags/india/ It’s surprising how long we can live without food, but without water, survival is impossible, that’s why it’s the most precious of our natural resources. Now though, only 1% of the world reserves are safely drinkable. Yet, we consistently fail to see or treat water as the life-giving treasure that it really is. Supplies are being contaminated with industrial and biological waste, aggravating a water crisis that is already crippling countries in every continent. Even India, which has tended to treat its waters with respect and awe, famously worshipping the River Ganges, has a cautionary tale to tell. Hindu people believe that if their sacred Ganges should ever be lost, the Universe would disappear too. Locals who have lived and worked on the river since childhood confirm that water quality has deteriorated dramatically over the years. For generations it has been the local custom to cremate the deceased and scatter their ashes on the river. However, many poor people can’t even afford firewood, they often resort to water burials in the river without burning, inevitably, this causes even more pollution. As serious as the health risks are, that is just a small part of the Ganges’ wider pollution problems. Two other major factors are contributing to the river’s toxic decline; raw sewage flows directly into the once sacred water and factories dump huge quantities of chemical waste. The proper disposal of human waste is a pressing issue in India with proper toilets a rarity in rural areas. Many millions of villagers never even consider installing a regular toilet, held back either by poverty or blind acceptance of the status quo. Defecating in streets and fields is unsanitary and leads to the faecal contamination of ground water and so, waterborne diseases are commonplace. The government is attempting to address the problem with financial support and education initiatives for villagers. Progress is slow though; there are already places in India where local water reserves are now unfit for human consumption, or even for agriculture. Kolkata for example, on the Ganges Delta, has an abundance of water but the city has to depend on freshwater deliveries because its own supplies are so contaminated, they can’t even be used for laundry let alone drinking.

HEAN Fight for Environmental Justice - Documentary Short - Part II
The National Alliance for Hispanic Health and Hispanic Federation are working together on the Health and the Environment Action Network (HEAN) project. In New York the project has worked to identify the links between health risks and environmental hazards, create awareness of these hazards, and minimize the impact they have on the Latino community. The New York HEAN sites, Hispanic Fedeartion and UPROSE have worked with youth and community volunteers at select schools on a Pollution-Free School Zones Effort, where students measured the air and water pollution levels in local schools. Together we created a documentary The Fight for Environmental Justice: A Tale of Two Communities, which raises awareness of the detrimental impacts of air pollution from vehicle emissions, emissions from buildings, and touches on how we can develop comprehensive strategies for protecting the Latino community from further health and environmental threats. The video contains interviews with key members of the NYC environmental justice movement and members of our Advisory Committee, including Elizabeth Yeampierre of UPROSE; Luis Garden Acosta, President of El Puente; and Alexie Torres Fleming, Executive Director of Youth Ministries for Peace & Justice. The video also features interviews with prominent physicians who focus on Latino health and respiratory matters including Dr. Hector Castro, Medical Director at Beth Israel Medical Center- Latino Health Institute and Dr. Denise Serebriski, Director, Jacobi Asthma and Allergy Center for Children, Jacobi Medical Hospital.

Non Small Cell Lung Cancer Risk Factor | Risk Factor of NSCSL | What Increases Your Risk
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.
