It requires long periods of standing moisture, since it is a slow-growing mold. It appears black and green, and like all molds, it emits a musty odor. People at Risk • Black mold is toxigenic, meaning that it releases harmful toxins (called mycotoxins) into the atmosphere. Anyone can experience symptoms after breathing in mycotoxins, but certain people have an elevated risk, including children, the elderly, people with weak
The cough reflex is a long and deep inhalation followed by the closing of the glottis, this causes a strong exhalation that pushes the glottis open and sends air through the respiratory passages. Coughing can occur when a foreign body is located in the larynx, trachea or epiglottis. Cari is coughing due to the mucus and fluid buildup in her lungs and her body is trying to expel it. Question C: Which structures found in the terminal bronchioles and alveoli normally would protect Cari’s lungs from infectious pathogens and particulate matter? Alveolar macrophage protects her lungs by wondering around the alveoli space collecting dust, particles and debris.
Stimulus for the reflex could be a foreign body in the larynx, trachea, or epiglottis. Cari’s body is causing the cough reflex due to mucus and fluid buildup in her lungs. C. Which structures found in the terminal bronchioles and alveoli normally would protect Cari’s lungs from infectious pathogens and particulate matter? Alveolar macrophage protects the lungs by wondering around the alveoli spacing collecting dust particles and debris. Smoking has caused the cilia in the respiratory passages to become paralyzed and secrete excess amounts of mucus, macrophages are being sent to her lungs continuously and is getting stuck in the mucus instead of fighting off the pathogens.
The Black Death was very dangerous and contagious and destroyed 2/3's of Europe's population and it killed people in a strange manner. People who weren't affected went crazy in fear of catching it and the people who caught it usually died within 7 days. 1. The black death, also known as the Bubonic Plague that killed anywhere from 25-50 million Europeans and severely damaged Europe socially and economically. 2.

A disease at which everyday life can not be seeked up. More than 22 million people -- and some 6 million children -- have asthma. Everyday in the United States: 40,000 people will miss school or work because of asthma, 30,000 people will have and asthma attack, 5,000 people will visit the emergency room because of their asthma, 1,000 people will be admitted to the hospital
The affects greatly impacted the population and the future ways of life in Europe. One third of the population of Europe died (an estimated 75 to 200 million people). "The impact upon the future of England was greater than upon any other European country" (Cartwright 1991). I think the Black Death was the worst natural disaster in history because of the bubonic plague, the pneumonic plague, and the septicemia plague. Ships traveling along the trade routes were knowingly transporting rats but
The plague was so severe that it affected almost the whole sectors of life; including economic sectors, personal lives of people, and various others. The Black Death’s most severe affect was on the population. The population of Europe was deeply affected by it as there was no cure for such a disease. The reason the plague spread so wildly was because of the fleas and rats that carried it from one place to another in their skin. Within five years of the arrival of the disease, Europe saw 25 million people die.

The methane concentration is seventeen percent higher in the drinking water near sites where fracking is performed. The water is used by near by cities and towns. This water has been seen to cause sensory, respiratory, and neurological damage to those who are exposed to it. The chemicals used in the mixture are chemicals known to cause cancer. Fracking is also hard on the environment.
