Living and working in Detroit: Impact of an urban industrialized environment on our health

  • Over time, chronic low-level exposure to environmental stressors can lead to adverse health conditions and disease.
  • "Stressors"  include such factors as air and water pollution, workplace chemicals, biological agents, dietary components as well as emotional and psychosocial stress.
  • Some populations are at a higher risk: children, older adults, those with lower socioeconomic status, refugees and workers within certain occupations.
  • Furthermore, there are specific  life windows where people are at heightened risk, such as during pregnancy/lactation, puberty, old-age and during times when the immune system has been weakened.
  • Our goal is disease prevention through community awareness and public policy change.
