Human health

Several types of pollution affect the human health. For example, there is air pollution and water pollution. The Different types of pollution have various effects to human health. People develop various body problems as a result of the pollution. This paper focuses on the health effects people may have for being exposed to noise, which is produced by night club. The paper will also look at restrictions that should be met by new nightclubs before they are granted approval. Noise has various health effects to the health.

The high sounds also cause stress, acts as a stimulant of antisocial behaviors and aggression. According to research, high noise, which leads to loss of sleep, affects the immune system. The body immune system is affected in its operation due to lack of enough sleep because of high noise from the neighborhood (Rana, 2006). High noise, which leads to short-term sleep, also causes a reduction of antibody levels in the blood (Singal, 2005). Elevated sound levels act as a threat to public health. This mostly affects those people who live near public places such as bars and other meeting places.

Aerodynamic noise that is produced in the nightclubs makes people suffer from hearing loss (Ivanov, 2008). The high sounds are also associated with other health problems such as hypertension, vasoconstriction and known to induce tinnitus. The nightclubs should sign agreements that they would not produce noise that would go up to a certain distance. This should be put in the law and any nightclub that would go against this agreement should be closed with immediate effect and the owners fined. There should be no nightclub that should be licensed to operate in residential places.

These are some of the few recommendations that should be put in place to control the negative effects of the high noise to the members of the public. Alpha radiation is one of the most dangerous gas that is related to radon gas. This is released as atoms decay, the nucleus release alpha particulates, which have a positive charge. The particles are usually affected by magnetic fields and have low, penetrating power. As a result of the low, penetrating power of this particle, it becomes possible for human skin to stop these particles.

The particles also disperse their energy quickly and cause damage to molecules as they pass through them. A danger ensues if a human being breathes in these particles or swallows them for instance when drinking water (Goodwin, 2007). In this way, the particles cause health effect to human beings. According to scientific studies, children are more sensitive to radon. This is as a result of higher respiration rate and their cells, which divide very fast. This makes them more vulnerable to be damaged by the alpha radiation.

The other health effect of alpha radiation is that it dissolves easily in the blood and moves around the body organs and tissues. The deposition of in the lungs leads to lung cancer. Carcinogens cause damage to chromosomes and DNA molecules, which are contained in the nucleus of the cell. A large percentage of these cells are killed or sterilized. There are times when the damaged cells survive. The cells may proliferate leading to cancer. Most cancers are caused by such damaged cells. The passage of a single alpha particle has the potentiality of causing cancerous growth of cells (Goodwin, 2007).

Various measures can be taken to reduce radon gas levels. One measure is soil suction where radon is drawn from beneath the house and vented out of the house by use of pipes. Sealings are also put so that they can limit the flow of radon into a home. House pressurization is another method whereby a fan is used to create pressure differences, which helps in, keeping the radon away from the house (Franck & David, 1992).
