World Environment Day 2023
To celebrate World Environment Day, I am trying to start a recycling program at my hospital. I cringe every time I throw away a plastic bottle at work because we don’t have any recycling bins in this entire hospital. Climate changes impact the health of us all!
🌎 Increased asthma, allergies, and respiratory illnesses from air pollution.
🌎 Autoimmune diseases on the rise from exposure to toxins and pollution.
🌎 Infectious disease transmission from mosquitos and vectors from global warming.
🌎 Cancer from ozone depletion, chemicals, and pollutants.
🌎 Increased mental health problems from disconnect with nature and spending less time outdoors.
