This book aims to strengthen the knowledge base dealing with Air Pollution. The book consists of 21 chapters dealing with Air Pollution and its effects in the fields of Health, Environment, Economy and Agricultural Sources. It is divided into four sections. The first one deals with effect of air pollution on health and human body organs. The second section includes the Impact of air pollution on plants and agricultural sources and methods of resistance. The third section includes environmental changes, geographic and climatic conditions due to air pollution....
Volume 2 of the four-volume The Facts On File
Encyclopedia of Health and Medicine presents the
body systems that nourish, cleanse, and protect
the body. These are the systems of cells and fluids
and the structures that transport them throughout
the body. Though distinct in their functions and
purposes, these systems overlap and integrate
with one another in inseparable ways.
The Cardiovascular System
Volume 2 opens with “The Cardiovascular System,”
the structures and functions that carry
blood throughout the body.
Women's risk for many diseases increases at menopause, which occurs at a median age of 51.4 years. In the industrialized world, women spend one-third of their lives in the postmenopausal period.
Estrogen levels fall abruptly at menopause, inducing a variety of physiologic and metabolic responses. Rates of cardiovascular disease increase and bone density begins to decrease rapidly after menopause.
In the United States, women live on average about 5 years longer than men, with a life expectancy at birth in 2004 of 80.4 years, compared to 75.2 years in men.
The First Conference of French-Speaking African Countries on Men’s Participation in
Reproductive Health was held in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso from March 30 to April 3,
1998. It was organized to share experiences and lessons learned over the past decade
among African organizations about communicating with men on reproductive health

It shall be the responsibility, in the first instance, of all researchers to observe these
guidelines to monitor the implementation of the guidelines and to make decisions regarding
their interpretation and application.
These interventions call for a series of actions, including creation of an appropriate institutional
framework to support women's training, market linkages, access to credit and child care
facilities, schooling infrastructure including incentives designed to reduce the drop out rate for
girls, and maternal health care facilities to be spread out into remote rural areas. Given the
current state of data in and about Afghanistan and the limited experience with a variety of
actions, it is not possible to quantify precisely the impact of these actions.
As health care providers, we spend our lives searching for treatments
that reduce suffering and lengthen the lives of our patients. Sometimes
we find solutions in surprising places. Although we all have hopes for
advancements in technology, the future of medicine is also about
challenging preconceptions as we change our healing biases. In many
ways, this is the natural evolution of “global medicine.” We have global
communications and global banking; however, until recently medicine
has remained remarkably provincial.
Medical loss ratio likely to lead to rebates: This year, health insurers must either meet the new
minimum loss ratio requirements by spending at least 80 percent of premiums on care and
quality improvement or offer customers rebates in 2012. Already, 75 million Americans in plans
covered by this rule are benefiting from insurers’ efforts to lower administrative costs and
increase the value of their coverage. We estimate, in the small group market, one million
enrollees could receive rebates averaging $312 per enrollee.
PSI began working in Cambodia in 1993
and has successfully social marketed a
number of health products over the past 14
years. PSI/Cambodia and the MOH jointly
decided to address the gaps in appropriate
diarrhea treatment by launching a diarrhea
treatment kit (DTK), a prepackaged product
consisting of two sachets of low-osmolarity
ORS and 10 tablets of zinc sulfate.
Population groups that are potentially more vulnerable than others
to indoor air pollution are children, pregnant women, elderly people,
and people suffering from cardiovascular or respiratory diseases.
Depending on their age, children may be more vulnerable than adults
to certain toxic substances, like lead and tobacco smoke. Even at
low levels, air pollutants may disrupt the development of their lungs,
cause cough, bronchitis and other respiratory diseases, and make
Given the relationship between exposure and disease, removing these pests and their
allergens is a logical tactic for preventing disease and reducing symptoms, but current
methods need improved efficacy. Results from studies on avoiding allergens suggest cau-
tious expectations about the ease with which long-term clinically relevant allergen reduc-
tion can be accomplished. Also, public health practitioners should be aware that focusing
on one aspect of asthma control will not necessarily result in an improvement in the pre-
valence of asthma at the community level.
In many countries, babies born to women in prison stay in prison with their mother, and very
young children may accompany their mothers into prison. Facilities vary widely between and
within countries. Some countries have mother and baby units, with special facilities to
support the mother and the child’s development. In others, babies live in the prisons without
the state officially noting or monitoring their presence and without any special provision
being made for them.
Nutritional counseling and management are becoming important in health care,
particularly in the management of a number of chronic conditions and diseases. The
publication of this book is timely, because it aims to help physicians and their staffs
identify conditions and diseases that can be treated effectively with nutritional
intervention, and provides specifics on appropriate counseling and management.
The first of the 13 chapters discusses nutritional support for children, with
emphasis on premature infants, cystic fibrosis, and bronchopulmonary dysplasia....
The Physicians’ Health Study II, which included more than 14,000 male physicians aged 50
or older, found that neither vitamin E nor vitamin C supplements reduced the risk of major
cardiovascular events (heart attack, stroke, or death from cardiovascular disease), cancer,
or cataracts. In fact, vitamin E supplements were associated with an increased risk of
hemorrhagic stroke in this study.
As we note in our original report (and reiterate above), several of the primary instruments used to measure health literacy are highly correlated with general measures of literacy applied in the health care setting.21 This suggests that health literacy and literacy measures are strongly related. It has additionally raised questions about what terminology to apply to measures in the field.48
In this review, in distinction to our earlier report, we focus on “health literacy” rather than “literacy.” We made this decision for several reasons.
Heart disease is one of several cardiovascular diseases, which
are diseases of the heart and blood vessel system. Other
cardiovascular diseases include stroke, high blood pressure,
and rheumatic heart disease.
One reason some women aren’t too concerned about heart
disease is that they think it can be “cured” with surgery. This is
a myth. Heart disease is a lifelong condition—once you get it,
you’ll always have it. True, procedures such as bypass surgery
and angioplasty can help blood and oxygen flow to the heart
