As the our environment becomes hot and more Populated , ourv ehicles engines are continue pumping dirty emissions, and half the world does not have access to clean air, we breathe in Dangerously polluting air. Ten out of nine people now breathe polluted air, which kills 7 million people every year. Health effects of air pollution are serious one-third of deaths due to stroke, lung cancer, and cardiovascular disease are due to air pollution.
It is difficult to avoid air pollution, it does not matter in which areas you live. air pollution are all around us. Microscopic pollutants in the air can damage our body, we can penetrate deep in our respiratory and circulatory system, which harm our lungs, heart and brain.
The lack of visible haze is not an indication that the air is healthy, in both cities and villages are watching toxic pollutants in the air more than the average annual values recommended by the WHO's air quality guidelines. In order to help people understand better that the air is polluted, the WHO, the United Nations Environment and Climate and the Clean Life Alliance's breathing life campaign have developed online pollution meters.
There are two main types of air pollution - external air pollution due to various types of factories, vehicles engines smoke generation and indoor air pollution refers to pollution generated by domestic combustion of fuel (due to burning like coal, wood or kerosene), open fire or bad Basic stove in ventilated places. Indoor and outdoor air pollution can contribute to pollution air.
Domestic air pollution kills 4 million people annually and affects countries in Africa and Asia, where pollution fuels and old air pollution technologies are used everyday for cooking, heating and lighting. Women and children, who spend more time inside the house, are most affected.
Major pollutants: particle are mixture of solid and liquid droplets produced from fuel combustion and road traffic; Nitrogen dioxide from road traffic or indoor gas cookers; sulfur dioxide by burning fossil fuels; And ozone is caused by the reaction of sunlight with pollutant from ground emissions, at ground level. Pollutants that affect the people most are particle matter often PM is summarized and used as a remedy for air pollution.
particles with a diameter of 10 microns or less, (≤ PM10) can inhal deep inside the lungs, even more health-damaging particles are those with a diameter of 2.5 microns or less, (≤ PM2.5). These particles are so small that combines 60 particles make up the width of a human hair.
PM2.5 can goes inside the lung barrier and enter the blood system. They can increase the risk of heart and respiratory diseases, as well as lung cancer.
Ozone is a major factor to increase asthma and nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide can also cause asthma, bronchial symptoms, lung inflammation and reduced lung function.
How can there be polluted air before affecting our health? For PM 2.5, WHO guidelines say the maximum safe level is an annual average concentration of 10 μg / m3 or less. To encourage cities to reduce air pollution, even if they are unable to meet the ideal safe levels, WHO has set three interim targets for the cities. These are: 15 μg / m3 (interim target 3); 25 μg / m3 (interim target 2); 35 μg / m3 (interim target 1). Many cities are now getting higher than the upper level of the interim target 1.
Air pollution has a devastating effect on children. Worldwide, up to 14% of children aged 5 to 18 have asthma associated with factors including air pollution. Every year, 543 000 children under 5 years of age die of respiratory disease related to air pollution. Air pollution is also associated with childhood cancer. Pregnant women are brought in contact with air pollution, this embryo can affect brain development. Air pollution is also associated with cognitive impairment in both children and adults.
As well as affecting our health, pollutants in the air are also causing chronic environmental damage by running climate change, which is a major threat to health and wellness itself.
This month, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned that if we want to limit global warming to 1.5c, then the power taken out of coal should be eliminated by 2050. If not, we can only see a major climate crisis in 20 years.
The growing Internet technologies, undoubtedly, bring many benefits, can bring additional pressures, because connectivity to the virtual network increases day and night at any time of the day. Many adolescents are also living in areas affected by humanitarian emergencies like conflicts, natural disasters and epidemics. Young people living under such circumstances are particularly vulnerable to mental distress and disease.
Half of all mental illness starts at age 14
Half of all mental illness starts from the age of 14 years, but in most cases, known and treated is not done. In the case of the burden of disease in adolescence, depression is the third leading cause. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among people aged 15-29. The harmful use of alcohol and illegal medicines among adolescents is a major issue in many countries and can be dangerous, such as unsafe sex or dangerous driving. Food disorders are also a matter of concern.
Increasing recognition of the importance of building mental flexibility
Fortunately, to face the challenges of today's world, from the earliest ages, there is growing recognition of the importance of helping young people to develop mental flexibility. Evidence is growing that promoting and preserving the health of adolescence not only benefits the health of adolescents, but also for the contribution of workers with healthy young adults, both in the short and long term, but for economies and society. Are able to, their families and communities and society completely.
Prevention starts with better understanding
There can be a lot to help in making mental flexibility from early age to help prevent mental illness and disease between adolescence and young adults, and to help in management and recovery from mental illness. Awareness and understanding about early warning signs and symptoms of mental illness begins with prevention. Parents and teachers can help build the life skills of children and teenagers to help them face everyday challenges in home and school. Certain training can be provided for psychological support schools and other community settings and health workers so that they can be able to be able to detect and manage mental health disorders, improve or expand.
Investments by governments and involvement in social, health and education sectors are essential in comprehensive, integrated, evidence-based programs for the mental health of the youth. This investment should be linked to programs for raising awareness among adolescents and young adults so that they can take care of their mental health and help peers, parents and teachers to support their friends, children and students. Go. It is the center of the World's Mental Health Day this year.
Honda Motor Company Limited (7267.T) will invest $ 2 billion and take a 5.7 percent stake in the General Motors Company (GMN) Cruise Self-Driving Vehicle unit, in which a collaboration between two autocorcers is being increased in such a technique, Cost and risk are but no market-ready products.
Companies said on Wednesday that Honda, which is behind its many competitors in the development of driving vehicles, is paying $ 750 million for minority stake in Cruise and will invest $ 2 billion more than 12 years. Honda, GM and Cruise will jointly develop their own driving vehicles for deployment in the fleet of services around the world. GM shares were up 3.5 percent in early business In May, Softbank Group of Japan (9984T) said that it would buy a 19.6 percent stake in Cruise for $ 2.25 billion.
Honda's investment value Cruise is $ 14.6 billion - about one-third of GM's market cap, $ 48.5 billion GM acquired the startup located in San Francisco for $ 1 billion in March 2016. By comparison, analysts have valued the $ 180 billion worth of Vemo self-driving unit worth alpha-up ink. Honda has discussed the possible collaboration with Vemo for two years, but no deal has been done. In the media briefing on Wednesday, GM Chairman Dan Amman said that 2019 "targets have been made" for launching a self-driving ride service for GM Cruise. He further said: "With our long association with Honda, we will be allowed to move forward very fast in our efforts." GM Cruz and Vemo are often described as packs of techniques and auto companies who compete to create and integrate driving cars themselves. Ride them in the services fleet BMW, which is a development partnership with suppliers Intel Corp (INCTOO), Epitiv PLC (APTVVN) and Magna International (MGTO), hopes that some rivals and riding services companies will join their union for the development of driving cars themselves. Board Member Klaus Frohelich said that the pressure on the auto industry's profits is increasing.
At the Paris Auto Show on Wednesday, heads of Daimler AG (DAIGNE) and Renault (RNAAPA) said that both companies could extend their cooperation with batteries, self-driving vehicles and mobility services.
GM-Honda's announcement is in partnership, in which 2020 includes the combined development of electric vehicles with hydrogen fuel cells. In June, Honda also said that he would buy advanced batteries from GM, which can significantly reduce this step, both automakers cost future electric vehicles
