Sentinel health service surveillance

Special health problems involving detailed or laboratory investigation are often best collected by using sentinel health services. These are given extra staff or facilities to enable them to identify the disease. Influenza information is often collected in this way, as it is notoriously difficult to distinguish influenza from the common cold and other causes of a respiratory infection. Several sentinel health centres will then give a reasonable estimate of the problem in the entire area.

Meningococcal Meningitis

Native explanation is that transmission is directly from the nose through the skull and any traumatic insult to the nasal mucosa, such as the intense drying out during the Sahel hot season, or upper respiratory tract infection in colder climates, potentiates a greater number of organisms to pass along these minute channels and overcome the defences of the meninges.

Local Regional and Global Environmental Changes

This is particularly the case with urban air pollution, which has, in recent decades, become a worldwide public health problem.9,10 That is, although it does not constitute an integrated 'global' environmental change, its widespread occurrence as a locally generated and locally acting health hazard makes it, now, a 'worldwide' problem. An estimated 130000 premature deaths and 50-70 million incidents of respiratory illness occur each year due to episodes of urban air pollution in developing countries, half of them in East Asia. An even greater toll of chronic disease is attributable to long-term exposures to urban air pollution.'

Smoking Guns The Surprising Similarities of Tobacco and

Respiratory illness, cancers Respiratory illness cardiovascular toxicity are inhaling benzene, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and a host of other toxins. No matter the source, inhaling these pollutants can cause cancer, respiratory illness, and damage to your heart, lungs, and reproductive system.

Health Effects of Indoor Air Pollutants

Health conditions involving some allergic reactions, including hypersen-sitivity pneumonitis, allergic rhinitis, and some types of asthma, are triggered by bioaerosols. Symptoms related to bioaerosols include sneezing, coughing, shortness of breath, fever, and dizziness. Infections such as influenza, measles, and chicken pox are also transmitted through the air. Overall, poor air quality may be responsible for a decrease in work performance, general feeling of poor health, reduced ability to concentrate, or illness.

Acute Respiratory Infections ARI

The acute respiratory infections (ARI) are the commonest causes of ill health in the world. WHO have estimated that there are 14-15 million deaths a year in children under 5 years of age and one-third of these are due to ARI, yet despite their importance, they are a poorly defined group of diseases. They include the common cold, influenza, pneumonia, bronchitis and a number of other infections. They can be separated by clinical criteria, but it is the differing response of the individual to the organism that determines the clinical severity and management. A mild infection from an upper respiratory tract infection in one person may develop in another to a life-threatening attack of pneumonia. It is, therefore, not only the organism that determines the disease, but also the patient's response to the organism. 6. Climate. More respiratory infections are found in the cooler parts of the world or in the higher altitude regions of the tropics. There is a distinct seasonal effect in many...

Naturally Occurring Diseases

Common cold.137 (b) The international food trade, business trips, and tourism carry diseases quickly around the globe. Today there are about twenty times as many international travellers as in 1950. Now, when host and pathogen evolve side by side they can readily reach the uneasy compromise mentioned above the pathogen takes care to permit the host species to evolve resistance. When, however, a disease suddenly jumps from one continent to another, it will tend to find that in its new surroundings it is too powerful for its own good. It may bring death to almost everyone in a poorly prepared population. Repeatedly, the common cold has proved fatal in areas to which it was new. Introduced into North America by Columbus, chickenpox, influenza and measles bore much of the blame for the decline of the Amerindian peoples to a twentieth of their former numbers.

Acute Rheumatic Fever

Clinical features ARF is a delayed non-sup-purative sequel of upper respiratory tract infection or scarlet fever with GApHS. ARF is important because it can lead to rheumatic heart disease (RHD), the resulting cardiac damage producing considerable morbidity and mortality.

Waterborne pathogens found in human waste and associated diseases

Acute respiratory illness The CDC found evidence that during 2001-02 recreational water exposure in twenty-three states caused sixty-five outbreaks that sickened 2,536 people and caused eight deaths. Nearly half of the cases involved gastroenteritis. Other illnesses included dermatitis, Pon-tiac fever, and acute respiratory illness due to chemical exposure. Most of the cases were associated with swimming pools, wading pools, or spas. The eight deaths were attributed to primary amebic meningoencephalitis

Petroleum Threats from Womb to Tomb

Incidence and proximity to busy roadways.The research found that children living within a quarter mile of a freeway had an 89 percent higher risk of developing asthma than those who lived a mile away. For adults, the results indicated higher incidence of heart disease and deaths related to respiratory illness.32 Similar results have been found in Vancouver, Denver, and a host of other cities around the world.33

Avoiding Some of the Worst Offenders

On the other hand, a myriad of hazardous chemicals and contaminants can cause diseases, rashes, coughs, colds, and a long list of other maladies. The trick is to be efficient at sorting out the good from the bad. In this section, I review some of the worst home contaminants, and what to do about them.

Depicting and moralising Teessides air pollution

Yet as wider national and international concerns about environmental pollution have grown since the 1970s, Teesside's image as a place beset by abnormally severe air pollution has dogged it. Several disparate examples will illustrate the point. The first relates to the tobacco industry's own interest in Teesside's air pollution. For instance, in the 1950s the tobacco industry was not slow in spotting that Teesside offered a useful laboratory which might assist its efforts to deflect attention from the rising tide of evidence linking tobacco consumption with lung cancer and respiratory illness. Accordingly, research started in the 1950s, funded by the Tobacco Research Council, to examine 'environmental factors associated with lung cancer and bronchitis mortality' (Wicken and Buck 1964). A follow-up study continued this work through the 1960s (Dean and Lee 1977). The conclusions of these studies need not concern us here. The relevant point is that Teesside was seen to provide a suitable...

Future Threats And Impacts

Forests become more susceptible to fires during droughts. Widespread bush fires in combination with low mixing heights and light winds can result in severe air pollution episodes, causing acute respiratory illness. Direct exposure to fires can lead to burning injuries or death.

Box Household Use of Biomass and Coal

China's stove industry sells more than 10 million improved stoves per year, is worth about 30 million to the economy and is growing at a rate of 10 per year. From the 1990s onwards, however, there was significant switching away from biomass to coal. As a result, 90 of manufacturers' revenue comes from coal stoves rather than biomass stoves (Spautz et al., 2006). While both biomass and coal can give rise to respiratory illness, coal can also contain large quantities of arsenic, lead, mercury, other poisonous metals and fluorine. Exposure to indoor air pollution from coal fires is associated with a two-fold increased risk of lung cancer among women (WHO, 2006). Further improvements in indoor air quality will require both greater take-up of efficient cooking equipment and better ventilation, as well as faster switching to electricity (via grid connection, but also solar panels and micro-hydropower), piped gas, biogas, modern biomass fuels, such as ethanol gel, and alternative fossil...

Production and Transportation Fossil Energies

Mining for coal and drilling for oil and natural gas have large environmental costs associated with them. Coal mining, which is a very dangerous occupation, is devastating to the land. Coal can be mined in two ways deep shaft mining and surface mining. Deep shaft mining is used in areas where coal seams are located 100 feet or greater below the surface. This type of mining requires that miners work underground in mine shafts and extract coal by hand. Deep mining is very dangerous to those who work in the mines. Mine shafts can collapse, trapping and killing laborers. Mine shaft explosions can also occur from volatile gas build-up and poor ventilation. Despite numerous safety regulations, this is still a frequent occurrence around the world. Indeed, in countries that lack adequate safeguards, a great number of miners are killed in this manner. China's coal industry is the most hazardous in the world, officially registering 6,000 deaths in 2004 (Watts 2005). In the same year, the United...


For many, echinacea is the only thing for the common cold, less severe and of shorter duration. Black-eyed susan is one of the most common homegrown flowers of summer on the United States east coast. Everyone seems to have the coneflower, or purple coneflower, as it is often called. Apparently native American Indians used it for centuries. Extracts of Echinacea purpura are contained in the most popular supplements. Although people swear by it, the question remains, whether it really works. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial and that is as good as it gets physicians in the Department of Internal Medicine of the Marshfield Clinic, Marshfield, Wisconsin, sought to determine the efficacy of a standard preparation of E. purpura in reducing symptom severity and duration of the common cold one of the most prevalent acute illnesses in the United States Apparently adults contact 2-4 colds a year, and children as many as 10. If echinacea can...

Cold Bridges

Brick Fence Cold How

Cold bridges have been, along with too much glazing, the thermal nemesis of 'modern architecture'. A cold bridge is a pathway between the outside cold surface of a building and the internal warm air of the room. A cold bridge, most usually made of metal, conducts the heat out through the wall so cooling the internal wall surface of the building. A wall can be a cold bridge if it is built of solid masonry. Studies have shown that in, say, a 100 mm solid brick wall the internal surface temperature can be very similar to the external temperature. Walls are particularly vulnerable to cold bridging on corners, where they have more than one surface exposed to the elements, as shown in Figure 3.8. Cavity insulation can significantly improve the thermal performance of a wall. The most common cold bridges in buildings are metal lintels, wall ties, window frames and concrete and metal columns and beams that link the internal and external leaves of walls.

NOx Nitrogen Oxides

Short-term exposure to NO2 at concentrations found in the United States can increase respiratory illness in children. There is evidence that long-term exposure to NO2 may lead to increased susceptibility to respiratory infection. The least reactive nitrogen oxide is N2O, but it can affect both the ozone layer and global warming. Once in the atmosphere, it slowly diffuses into the stratosphere where it is destroyed by the shorter-wavelength UV radiation. The NO produced by this photodissociation is critical in establishing the amount of ozone in the stratosphere, so any increase in N2O would decrease the ozone layer. The lifetime of N2O is more than sixty years. Because it can absorb infrared radiation, the excess production of N2O can contribute to global warming.

Six Cities Yet Again

A follow-up to the Six Cities Study was reported in March 2006. Dr. Francine Laden and colleagues of the Harvard School of Public Health followed 8096 residents of the six cities, aged 25-74, from 1974 to 1998, and found that for each decrease of 1 g m3 of soot, less than PM2.5, rates of cardiovascular disease, and respiratory illness decreased by 3 , which translates to extending the lives of 75,000 people a year. This clearly supports the call for reducing the clean air standards well below 15 g m3 26 .

Supplemental Oxygen

Of course, oxygen does support life and is required full time. But is more better Does anyone need more anyone not tapping on death's door Rose Creek Health Products, Inc., of Kettle Falls, Washington, thinks so. According to Rose Creek, their oxygenated water, with vitamin O, which stabilizes oxygen molecules (whatever that means), would prevent and cure pulmonary ailments, headaches, infections, flu, colds, and cancer. They also claimed that vitamin O aids digestion, relaxes the nervous system, boosts energy, promotes sound sleep, and hones memory and concentration 60 ' Was there a market for vitamin O They were selling upward of 50,000 bottles of water a month when the FTC and FDA had them cease and desist pulled their plug, telling Rose Creek that they had to stop the unsubstantiated claims, and that as advertised, their vitamin O was a drug under the Food and Drug Act. It does appear that people will buy anything, so long as the label says it will cure something. Not a good omen.

The Asian Cloud

We are not talking about a hypothetical effect here. The Asian cloud has been integrated into the daily life of a region that is home to 60 percent of the world's six billion people. For John Hayes, a British resident of Bangkok, the ever-present choking pollution finally forced him to uproot his family and return to England. In a Guardian story entitled Life under the Asian Brown Cloud, Hayes wrote about the two-stroke motorcycles spluttering burnt oil, 10-wheel trucks converting inferior, adulterated and cheap diesel into dense black clouds, and nice shiny imported limousines spewing out more fumes. The journey to Hayes's children's playground, only a mile away, could take an hour of lurching through traffic and smoke. The kids, he says, visited the hospital at least once a month with allergies that caused irritation to the eyes and nose, or with the vicious effects of a tropical common cold. This usually meant not just a runny nose, but a high fever accompanied by aches and pains....

Water Supplies

Many of America's cities are on the verge of serious water shortages and underground aquifers are increasingly depleted. One day in the near future newspaper and TV stories will be emphasizing water problems at home rather than those abroad. Part of the political problem in looking for solutions is that democracies are ambulance forms of government, not preventive-medicine forms of government. Nothing is done until the patient is near death, when panic sets in. The patient is not yet near enough to death for most Americans to become unnerved. This point of view is hardly surprising. Do you visit the doctor when you are well or have only a bad cold Probably not. Your body can likely cure itself. Unfortunately our water problems will not cure themselves.
