Occupational Exposures

  • Accomplishments of Environmental Medicine
    One highlight: Exposure to fine particles, sulfur dioxide, and acid aerosols has been linked to an increase in respiratory symptoms and reduced lung capacity.
  • Conditions Investigated by Environmental Medicine Programs
    Allergies, asthma, heart disease, and cancer are among the long list of health conditions with ties to environmental factors.
  • Epidemiology
    Epidemiology is the study of the occurrence of disease in people, and applying that information from the study to the control of health problems.
  • Occupational Lung Diseases
    Repeated and long-term exposure to certain irritants on the job can lead to an array of lung diseases that may have lasting effects, even after exposure ceases.
