Environment and Health
Posted by Administrator in General on January 21, 2011

The environment, which sustains human life, is also a profound source of ill health for many of the world's people. In the least developed countries, one in five children do not live to see their fifth birthday -- mostly because of avoidable environmental threats to health [1]. That translates into roughly 11 million avoidable childhood deaths each year. Hundreds of millions of others, both children and adults, suffer ill health and disability that undermine their quality of life and hopes for the future. These environmental health threats -- arguably the most serious environmental health threats facing the world's population today -- stem mostly from traditional problems long since solved in the wealthier countries, such as a lack of clean water, sanitation, adequate housing, and protection from mosquitoes and other insect and animal disease vectors.
