There are a number of environmental factors impacting health - heavy metals, environmental chemicals, plastics, chemicals in personal care products, electromagnetic radiation, mold, air and water pollution all impact health. The World Naturopathic Federation (WNF) is consolidating the research on the key environmental risk factors and is creating an animated video and web-based platform to share that information globally. Support this important project of the WNF.
Chronic diseases are on the rise. Although, many factors contribute, environmental factors are often overlooked. Awareness of the sources and impact of environmental factors, personally, at work and home, in our communities and globally is an important first step. The aim of this project is to educate the public on environmental risk factors and on how to limit exposure.
Educating the public with research-based information that is applicable to them is an essential first step. Naturopathic researchers will summarize the information on key environmental risk factors based on "where they come from", "how they affect you", and "how to protect yourself". The funds will be used to create an animated video to educate the public on environmental risk factors and how to limit exposure. The video will be translated into various languages.
The project will provide a solid understanding of the impact that environmental risk factors are having on health around the globe. The aim is to provide animated videos and a web-based platform in six languages. The WNF is committed to a two-year social media educational initiative with two posts a week. Our aim is reach over 100,000 people. The Environmental Risk Factors research will be continually updated on the WNF site. The WNF will be building alliances with other organizations.
