The health of the environment affects our health as much as any other. It incorporates those environmental issues focused on the physical, chemical and biological factors. For this reason, the quality in the surroundings we are living in plays a very important role in our lives. There are lots of respiratory diseases closely linked with the pollution levels. Many more people are exposed, nowadays, to this polluted air beyond the healthy limit. On the other hand, pesticides that easily get into our bloodstream through the food we consume like fruits and vegetables, have a negative effect on our body and our immune system, disrupting our endocrine processes. One of the many issues is the polluted water that we consume and the lack of it too. Water is the most important thing for anyone on the planet and not having a source for drinking water  can have fatal causes in any of us.

Another thing to consider is the higher level of people getting sick by cancer and any cardiovascular illnesses. It is also something that will affect kids more and for this reason the solution is to decrease our carbon footprint in the planet, using more often public transport and saving power and water can be some of the many things we can do to save our planet, “a healthy environment is key to a good health”.


La salud ambiental influye en nuestro bienestar. Este concepto engloba todos aquellos factores del medio ambiente que pueden llegar a incidir en nuestra salud. Por esta razón, la calidad del entorno en el que vivimos es vital para mantener una buena salud. Hay muchas enfermedades respiratorias derivadas de la contaminación en el aire. Muchas más personas están expuestas a niveles de contaminación por encima del límite establecido como seguro. Por otra parte, los plaguicidas, que se encuentran fácilmente en productos que podemos consumir crudos, como pueden ser verduras y frutas, afectan negativamente a nuestro sistema inmunológico y alteran los procesos endocrinos. Uno de los aspectos a tener en cuenta es la contaminación del agua y la sequía. El agua es esencial para la vida y la carencia de esta puede llegar a ser un gran desafío para la existencia. Por otro lado, un dato bastante interesante es el hecho de que cada vez hay un mayor número de  enfermedades no transmisibles, como puede ser cáncer o accidentes cardiovasculares, provocados por los factores medioambientales y la contaminación. Este problema también afecta con mucha más frecuencia a los niños pequeños, ya que son un grupo mucho más susceptible. Como solución o parte de esta, podemos empezar adoptar estrategias que reduzcan nuestra huella de carbono, disponiendo menos de nuestros vehículos propios y más de transporte público o incluso fomentar el uso de las bicicletas o de caminar para ir al trabajo o para subir las escaleras, lo que a su misma vez, ayudará a nuestra salud, recordando que “un ambiente sano es la base de la salud en la población y para ellos todos tenemos que contribuir”.

Common colds are infection that affect your nose and throat. Although they might not look like it, they are harmless and can be cured in about a week or 10 days, at most. However, it is always advisable to know how to avoid them so not to go through that nuisance of being sick.

There’s no vaccine for the common cold, but there are other things that are useful in order to slow the spread of the virus. One of the best is to wash your hands, with soap and water and very often. You can also use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, but only if you don’t have soap. On the other hand, it is very effective to disinfect your stuff and to discard used tissues right away after sneezing or coughing on them. Furthermore, the most common thing is not to share drinking glasses or utensils with people that have cold or if you have it. Apart from that, the only thing you can do is to take care of yourself, eating well and getting enough sleep.
