History and Reasons for Celebrating World Environment Health Day
The International Federation of Environmental Health (IFEH) founded World Environment Health Day in 2011 to emphasise the importance of taking care of the health of the environment. According to the World Health Organization, a healthier environment can result in preventing a number of diseases. Climate cycle, clean air, sanitation and hygiene, adequate drinking water, health-supportive cities, safe use of chemicals, sound agricultural practices, and preserved nature are all responsible for a healthy environment, which can result in sound public health.
We frequently interact with the environment and the impact of the same is important. It is vital to keep the environment healthy to protect our lives from several environmental hazards. Such hazards can lead to asthma, allergies, respiratory system disorders, cancers, and other health problems.
