Can the heavy traffic in your commute be affecting your health? No matter where you live, the quality of the air you breathe impacts you every day.Can the heavy traffic in your commute be affecting your health? No matter where you live, the quality of the air you breathe impacts you every single day. Air pollution is the contamination of air by smoke and harmful gases; mainly oxides of carbon, sulfur, and nitrogen. Air pollution comes from many different sources, such as factories, cars, and smoke - all of which release a wide variety of pollutants affecting air quality. Negative health effects increase as air pollution worsens. How air pollution impacts your health is determined by several factors: the length of time you are exposed, your general health and genetic makeup, and the concentration of pollutants. People with asthma, lung and heart conditions are the most vulnerable to the affects of air pollution. Children are especially vulnerable, since their lungs are still developing. The elderly are at a higher risk as well. What can you do to protect your health and the health of your family? Scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, Gabriele Pfister, shares the ailments caused by exposure, if you are at a greater risk for health-related effects and the lifestyle choices that you can change to help the impact of pollution on your health.
One of the biggest food safety issues right now involves the deliberate adulteration of food with biological or chemical agents.Counterfeit food is a serious international problem. One of the biggest food safety issues right now involves the deliberate adulteration of food with biological or chemical agents. Economically motivated adulteration (EMA), is not aimed to harm people but to inflate profits by fraudulent means. EMA events cost the food industry between $10 billion and $15 billion a year. What exactly is EMA? Cheap products are presented as branded or top-quality ones, or cheaper ingredients are added to genuine products to increase profit margins. Mislabeling is another issue. Over 50 percent of pomegranate juices do not contain the advertised ingredients. Shaun Kennedy, former director of the National Center for Food Protection and Defense at the University of Minnesota, estimates that 10 percent of food that consumers buy in the developed world has been adulterated. Whenever there is food tampering, there are potential risks to health. Kennedy joins Melanie Cole to explain what's happening with our food system. He also shares the top food most subject to food fraud and how to protect yourself.
