World Environmental Health Day 2020: Biodiversity loss is a global health emergency

LAGUNA, Sept. 28 — The spiralling impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic that continue to be felt across the world is a timely and critical reminder that our working public health systems are intimately built around healthy environments— thriving ecosystems and the diverse life depending on them. Ensuring protection and conservation of natural ecosystems and habitats contributes to the prevention of emerging outbreaks of diseases of zoonotic origin.

As the international community celebrates World Environmental Health Day, the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) takes the opportunity to highlight the importance of more drastic and serious actions for biodiversity ahead of the United Nations Summit on Biodiversity on 30 September 2020.

Let’s fix the climate movement’s messaging problem this World Environmental Health Day

Ever heard of World Environmental Health Day? 

If the answer is no, you’re not alone. 

We often hear about environmental disasters and their impact on our precious planet. The issue has become so well-known that over one billion people celebrate Earth Day every year. What we rarely hear about, though, is the link between the environment we live in and our personal health and wellbeing. 

In 2011, the International Federation of Environmental Health launched an initiative to educate the world on environmental health issues and promote international cooperation to improve Earth’s health. Since then, every year, on the 26th of September, a handful of organizations and individuals across the planet celebrate World Environmental Health Day to raise awareness about how environmental factors impact our health and the health of our loved ones. In light of the current pandemic, this year’s theme will be focused on the vital role environmental health

LEED Platinum Community Takes Environmental Stance on Smoking

The ideals of green living have slowly taken root in American society. Eco-mindedness no longer exists among a poorly publicized group of advocates labeled as radical thinkers. Environmental concerns have become so real that city planners are cooperating on multiple levels to create entire blocks with health codes written based on green ethics. The resulting sustainability standards make energy efficiency commonplace with every light bulb and appliance in a three-story apartment complex. These ideals happen to dovetail nicely with the separate but related national front to rid our culture of cigarette use. Where anti-smoking lease laws were simply relegated to the interior of a buyer’s room, new green coalitions are now able to enact fully smokeless zones on the grounds that the tobacco industry negatively impacts the environment.

The Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design

LEED, one of the more important examples of the green movement’s prominence in our world … Read More

The Expanding Field of Environmental Health Sciences

Environmental Health Sciences can be defined as the assessment, evaluation and control of chemical, physical and biological hazards in order to protect public health. The sanitary revolution began in the late 1800s when it was determined that basic environmental sanitation and hygiene were necessary to prevent communicable diseases. Sewage disposal and water quality control were necessary to prevent diseases like cholera.

Today environmental health science is concerned with more global issues due to expanding populations. Such issues are: the pandemic flu and West Nile Virus. Also, global warming and ozone depletion are probably the two major global environmental health issues today, but yet the most controversial. The environmental health scientist must be well prepared to evaluate such controversial issues, as the ramifications do affect public health.

With globalization and exponential advancement in technology, the environmental health scientist must have broad knowledge of health sciences, not just sewage disposal and water … Read More
