The environment around a person is not only the air around him. It is made up of many factors: ecology, climate, weather, food and even the society in which he lives. Each of them is important because, if it has a negative impact, it can completely neutralize the positive impact of everyone else.
The influence of the environment is manifested, first of all, on the physical and mental health of a person. As doctors have found out, the latter depends by 50% on what lifestyle a person leads, how well he treats himself and takes care of maintaining his health and maintaining good physical shape. The remaining 50% is divided as follows: 10% of health depends on the level of medicine in the area where a person lives, 20% - on what is his heredity and 20% - on what is the state of the environment.
It has been proven that a polluted atmosphere, poor drinking water, food products treated with herbicides and other harmful chemicals, cause many serious diseases and, worst of all, congenital physical and mental defects. A disregard for the environment, a desire for immediate benefits and a desire to save money on industrial cleaning technologies lead to disastrous results, as stated in the recently published state report "On the state of sanitary and epidemiological well-being of the population in the Russian Federation in 2013" published by Rospotrebnadzor.
The main sources of environmental pollution remain industrial enterprises, spraying harmful mixtures through factory pipes and pouring waste from their production into nearby rivers, which store them in giant garbage dumps. Through the atmosphere, soil and water, harmful substances (arsenic, lead, mercury, cadmium, zinc, chromium, nickel, copper and cobalt) enter food and the human body. Having a tendency to accumulate, they gradually poison it, provoking cancer, asthma and all kinds of allergies.
In addition to man-made factors, the weather and climate also affect human health. For the middle latitudes, in which the majority of the population of Russia lives, exacerbations of colds and flu are characteristic in winter, the bulk of ulcerative bleeding occurs in February, exacerbations of rheumatism are most often observed in April. The influence of the electromagnetic field is manifested in the form of aggravation of nervous disorders and cardiovascular diseases.
For a person, as for a social being, society is also the environment that determines the state of his health. Good social conditions, a positive attitude are necessary for the normal functioning of the human body.
