Environmental disease

In epidemiology, environmental disease are those determinants of disease that are not transmitted genetically. They are non-infectious diseases. Apart from the true monogenic genetic disorders, environmental diseases may determine the development of disease in those genetically predisposed to a particular condition. Stress, physical and mental abuse, Diet, exposure to toxins, pathogens, radiation and chemicals found in almost all personal care products and household cleaners are common environmental disease that determine a large segment of non-hereditary disease. Environmental diseases affect business as well. I.E. interest rates, prices of oil, the weather. If a disease process is concluded to be the result of a combination of genetic and environmental factor influences, its etiological origin can be referred to as having a multifactorial pattern.It is also deals with dust, water and air. there are many different types of environmental disease including
