our immune system and the impact of environmental health

Air Pollution and Allergens: Lower immune system function makes people more prone to respiratory illnesses and allergy responses when air pollution and allergens are present.

Pesticides, heavy metals, and industrial chemicals are just a few examples of the pollutants that might compromise immune function and lead to long-term health problems.

Water Pollution: Ingesting water from a contaminated source might weaken the immune system and lead to gastrointestinal problems.

Pollen, mold, and dust mites are just a few examples of environmental allergens that can cause allergic responses, which in turn can compromise the immune system and cause breathing problems.

The immune system's capacity to fight infections and the transmission of illnesses are both influenced by climate change, which includes changes in weather patterns, extreme weather events, and temperature swings.

Environmental Microbial Exposure: Being exposed to different types of environmental microorganisms can actually boost the immune system by making it more able to identify and combat infections.

Noise Pollution: Excessive noise exposure over long periods of time can cause stress, disrupt sleep, and alter hormone levels, which can eventually impact immune function.

Sunlight and other ionizing radiation, such as X-rays and ultraviolet (UV) rays, can harm cells and reduce the immune system's response.
