How meth can give you a destructive lifestyle is it starts with an “up” and is followed by an unpleasant “down” which can be avoided by taking more of the drug. The longer the “up” is maintained, the worse the “down” feels, and the harder the addict will go to take the drug just so they can keep their high. Meth gives you poor hygiene because it will eventually give you periodontal disease and you will start to develop plaque on your teeth and gum line. Now how sugary foods and drinks damages your body is once you have so much plaque built up it will soon cause tooth decay because of the amount of acid those sugary food and drinks have in them.
Because of the environmentally hazardous locations being placed in communities where the health and safety of those who live there are negatively affected, this is NOT sustainable. If we want all people living on Earth in the year 2060 to be able to achieve a quality lifestyle, then we should not be placing waste sites in communities where the health and living conditions are negatively impacted. The main idea of racism is that groups of people are labeled as inferior by another group of people that view themselves as being superior over everyone else. The habits and actions that we engage in today play a major part in the downfall of our environment and it all stems from the issue of being greedy, and possessing the thought that one is superior over everyone else and puts their own wants and needs first regardless of the effects on others and the environment. Sustainability’s main objective is to protect the environment for the future generations by preforming actions that help to make the Earth a better place to live, and Environmental Racism attacks the objective of sustainability by exposing those of minority communities to a toxic and unhealthy environment.

More and more rivers started to get polluted and unclean air started appearing in cities. This of course created poor living and working conditions and health problems.
A very large issue that had a lot of bad consequences was the pollution, as a result of factories and homes the pollution in urban areas intensified and was very prevalent this contaminated waterways and resulted in diseases spread by the pollution another effect of the immense pollution where unusual weather patterns like acid rain and smog. The working conditions in factories were very poor as such the machinery and equipment in these facilities had caused many serious injury and death this was due to the poor quality and maintenance in the factory. As a result of this regular occurrence of injury people didn't have the ability to work and where forced out of the workforce, other factories where not interested in these people due to their inability to work, and therefore had no employment often resorting to begging. People in factories were subject to long working hours and in unsanitary environments due to rare cleaning. Parents sent their kids to work in factories at a young age in order to bring money home to support the family, these children were exposed to extreme conditions and were often employed more than their older counterounts due to the low wages that were paid to children, they also had the same long working hours leaving ample time for anything other than sleeping and no education.
According to document six, the Industrial Revolution had a negative effect for people living in England because people who were not economically stable lived in non-sanitized areas. The people who were not economically stable had to live in slums. Slums were typically non-sanitized areas. These areas streets were unpaved, full of holes, filthy, and human excrement was usually found in the streets. These were not the best conditions for them because their river and streets were contaminated with human excrement and this caused many deathly disease that could be inhaled or
Industrial and capital hubs in developing countries are similarly characterized by multiple urban sprawls, informal settlements and overcrowding. The local governments or municipalities in many developing countries are highly challenged by mainly poor or weak policy and legislative provisions to regulate and enforce waste management guidelines. They also lack adequate funding and the correct capacity in terms of waste management personnel. All these challenges lead to situations where these local authorities are failing to take effective decisions with regards to solid waste management. It is worth noting that the decisions which municipalities are facing in terms of managing solid waste are not only difficult and capital intensive but they impact greatly on the natural environment as well as on social lives of people, therefore solutions to this issue are a matter of

In atherosclerosis, fatty material and cholesterol are deposited inside the lumen of medium and large sized blood vessels (arteries). These deposits forms a plague cause the inner surface of the vessels to become narrow, making it harder for blood to flow through. Eventually the plague can rapture, triggering in the formation of a blood clot, if the blood clot develops in coronary artery, it can cause a heart attack, if it develops in the brain, and it can cause a stroke. Risk factors associated with atherosclerosis’ are as follows, tobacco use ,physical inactivity ,unhealthy diet ( rich in salt, fat ,and calories)harmful use of alcohol ,and metabolic risk factors hypertension raised blood sugar (diabetes) raised blood lipids.(Global atlas on CVDs preventition and control
Diseases or illnesses affecting the lungs cause the flow of air and blood into and out of your lungs to become impaired. Obstruction in the airflow impairs the lower airways from clearing out mucus which in turn creates an ideal environment for infection. Inflammation in the airways occurs and makes matters worse for the lungs. Inflammation with COPD damages the system responsible for the clearing of mucus in the airways. The risk of developing pneumonia for those with COPD is greater due to already weakened lungs and the inability to filter bacteria and viruses.
In today’s society, specific illnesses are found in certain areas because of a lack of sanitation or limited access to medicine and vaccinations. At this point, sanitation was relatively poor everywhere, which lead to its high infection rate. Other factors such as the Arab expansion, the Crusades and the discovery of the West Indies all contributed to the spread of the disease. Humans, by nature, are curious creatures, which is one of the many reasons why smallpox escalated to multiple different areas around the world. A great example of this is the introduction of smallpox by the Spanish and Portuguese explorers.
