Fatigue Constipation or diarrhea It is important, however, to consider how common these symptoms actually are. In studies that put obese patients on a ketogenic diet for 6 months or longer up to two yearsno side effects or complications were reported. People on the opposite end of the activity spectrum like marathoners, Ironman competitors, and cyclists have been on a ketogenic diet for up to 3 years without any reported side effects.
An atmospheric plume formed, consisting of toxic materials such as metals, furans, asbestos, dioxins, PAH, PCB and hydrochloric acid. Most of the materials were fibres from the structure of the building.
Asbestos levels ranged from 0. PAH comprised more than 0. At the site now called Ground Zero, a large pile of smoking rubble burned intermittently for more than 3 months. Gaseous and particulate particles kept forming long after the towers had collapsed.

Fire fighters and medics working at the WTC were exposed, but also men and women on the streets and in nearby buildings, and children in nearby schools. In vivo inhalation studies and epidemiological studies pointed out the impact of the dust cloud.
Health effects from inhaling dust included bronchial hyper reactivity, because of the high alkalinity of dust particles. After September, airborne pollutant concentrations in nearby communities declined. Many people present at the WTC at the time of the attacks are still checked regularly, because long-term effects may eventually show.
It is thought there may be an increased risk of development of mesothelioma, consequential to exposure to asbestos. Airborne dioxins in the days and weeks after the attack may increase the risk of cancer and diabetes. Infants of women that were pregnant on September 11 and had been in the vicinity of the WTC at the time of the attack are also checked for growth or developmental problems.
During the war, extensive damage was done to the environment, and many people suffered health effects from weapons applied to destroy enemy targets.
It is estimated that ten thousand villages, and their surrounding environments were destroyed. Safe drinking water declined, because of a destruction of water infrastructure and resulting leaks, bacterial contamination and water theft.
Rivers and groundwater were contaminated by poorly constructed landfills located near the sources. Afghanistan once consisted of major forests watered by monsoons. During the war, Taliban members illegally trading timber in Pakistan destroyed much of the forest cover. US bombings and refugees in need of firewood destroyed much of what remained.
In the mountains many large animals such as leopards found refuge, but much of the habitat is applied as refuge for military forces now. Additionally, refugees capture leopards and other large animals are and trade them for safe passage across the border.
Pollution from application of explosives entered air, soil and water. One example is cyclonite, a toxic substance that may cause cancer. Rocket propellants deposited perchlorates, which damage the thyroid gland. Numerous landmines left behind in Afghan soils still cause the deaths of men, women and children today.
Cambodia civil war — In the Prince of Cambodia began to lose the faith of many for failure to come to grips with the deteriorating economic situation.
In rebellion started in a wealthy province where many large landowners lives. Villagers began attacking the tax collection brigade, because taxes were invested in building large factories, causing land to be taken.
This led to a bloody civil war. Before the conflict could be repressed 10, people had died. The rebellion caused the up rise of the Khmer Rouge, a Maoist-extremist organization that wanted to introduce communism in the country.
In the organization, led by Pol Pot, officially seized power in Cambodia. The Khmer considered farmers proletarians to be the working class, as did Mao in China earlier. Schools, hospitals and banks were closed, the country was isolated from all foreign influence, and people were moved to the countryside for forced labor.
People were obligated to work up to 12 hours a day, growing three times as many crops, as was usually the case.
The Khmer Rouge regime resulted in deforestation, caused by extensive timber logging to finance war efforts, agricultural clearance, construction, logging concessions and collection of wood fuels. Deforestation resulted in severe floods, damaging rice crops and causing food shortages.
Ina ban on logging exports was introduced to prevent further flooding damage. In the Khmer Rouge regime ended with an invasion by Vietnam, and the installation of a pro-Vietnamese puppet government.
Subsequently, Thai and Chinese forces attempted to liberate the country from Vietnamese dominance. They deny agricultural use of the land where they are placed.Environmental effects of warfare Page updated Sept Created by S.M.

Abstract. Freshwater scarcity is increasingly perceived as a global systemic risk. Previous global water scarcity assessments, measuring water scarcity annually, have underestimated experienced water scarcity by failing to capture the seasonal fluctuations in water consumption and availability.
Human overpopulation is among the most pressing environmental issues, silently aggravating the forces behind global warming, environmental pollution, habitat loss, the sixth mass extinction, intensive farming practices and the consumption of finite natural resources, such as fresh water, arable land and fossil fuels, at speeds faster than their rate of regeneration.
With member countries, staff from more than countries, and offices in over locations, the World Bank Group is a unique global partnership: five institutions working for sustainable solutions that reduce poverty and build shared prosperity in developing countries.
Morocco knows it will be affected by climate change, it’s just a question of how badly. It is already feeling the effects: The rate of economic growth fell to % this year because of a severe drought in As of last count, there were medicines on the drug shortage list.
They include a bafflingly wide array of medical staples such as epinephrine, morphine, and sterile water.
