      A previous study carried out by Greenpeace and other groups estimated the true cost of coal - which includes current off-the-account environmental and health impacts - . The increased use of fossil fuels and machines, such as the steam engines shown in Figure , changed society and greatly increased the efficiency of agriculture, industry, and transportation. During the Industrial Revolution, the large-scale production of goods in factories became less expensive than the local production of goods. The PSR report further illustrates the adverse effects of the mining of coal on the environment, water and human health. Coal mining leads U.S. industries in fatal injuries, and miners have Author: Earthtalk.

    Health effects of toxic constituents found in coal ash Lead: The exposure of lead in coal ash can cause major damage to the nervous system. [5] Lead exposure can lead to kidney disease, hearing impairment, high blood pressure, delays in development, swelling of the brain, hemoglobin damage, and male reproductive problems. The potential for adverse health effects related to releases of radionuclides is directly related to the population density near the mine or processing facility. • Internal exposure to radioactive materials during uranium mining and processing can take place through inhalation, ingestion, or through a cut in the skin.

    Increasing our use of coal would increase concern over several environmental issues. Two main environmental concerns associated with the use of coal are: Pollution, caused by emissions of contaminants such as sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and mercury, which affects human and environmental health. The U.S. EPA Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed this background document to illustrate the human health and environmental damages caused by management of wastes from mining (i.e., extraction and beneficiation) and mineral processing, particularly damages caused by placement of mining and mineral processing wastes in land-based Size: KB. Written by the leading scholars, this book is a masterful summary of the scientific literature on the health effects of air pollution. It explores what is known, what is controversial, and the scientific basis for the health effects, including lessons from animal and clinical : Paperback.   Residential coal burning and cigarette smoking are the most common sources of indoor air pollution in Chinese households [1–3].Although use of coal stoves and smoking have been linked to respiratory morbidity among adult populations in mainland China [1, 4–6], little is known about how these exposures affect Chinese children's respiratory by:
