Student’s Name Instructor Course Date Correlations between Environment and Health of school-aged Children Children are exposed to different factors that can affect their health. The environment in which a child grows has a significant effect on their development and health issues. The environment affects children in varied ways as compared to adults. Since children are still growing and developing they are at a greater risk of being exposed to environmental contaminants. Environments in poor neighborhoods tend to have different forms of pollution (Wells 2014:95-109). Children in these communities are always vulnerable to the pollution which might include child. Exposure to various contaminants in the environment affects the health of a child and in turn the development and growth of that child. Poor communities are mostly affected by contaminants.
