    I have asthma so my health can be severely impacted by environmental factors, pollutants in the air being the worst.  The fumes from cleaning products are also really bad, I need to have very good ventilation when cleaning.
  • Reflection Question

    What environmental factors affect human health in your region, and how do they affect it?

    I live in a small town in the mountains so we have beautiful sky's and clear air.  Until they start doing control burns in the area, then our air quality is reduced dramatically but it's only temporary.  Our biggest concerns are fires and water quality... oh, and the pollen that drives Alix crazy
  • Reflection Question
    Food Meet My Local Farmers
    When you know who produces your food, you are connecting personally to your complex regional food system. What are the advantages of knowing who produces your food and where it comes from? How can knowing their food producers enable someone to advocate for a better quality of life for those who produce their food, both near and far?

    Knowing where our food comes from and how much work/effort goes into producing it can give us a much greater appreciation for the food we eat.  We really do need to take care of the people that take care of us
