THE EARLY DETECTION OF ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS
When we are going to find out the environmental problems it will be best if we know what the source of the problem is, because the health impact depend on the dose of the chemical or what ever that human had eaten or consume. Then the dose of the drug for instance, depend on the exposure or the human’s attitude or life style. The Exposure also depend on where the human have contact to the pollutant, where the pollutant itself depend on the sources of the pollutants wheter that is an industry, hospital, agricultural, or what.
The above theory is saying that the health impact always come from the source, wheter that is natural environment, man made environment or sick person, therefore the early detection to do or the best thing to do is in (A) step, because in this step the human being is still alive and that is why so many good plans or arrangement could be done first. Remember that doing health promotion or health prevention is must better and easier and cheaper other than doing curation or clinical activities.
Bellow are examples of some environmental diseases :
