A SILENT KILLER: THE UNDER-RECOGNISED ROLE OF ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS IN NON-COMMUNICABLE DISEASES

Wednesday 16 October: 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Mill Lane Lecture Rooms , 8 Mill Lane, CB2 1RX

Non-communicable diseases (e.g. cardiovascular diseases, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes) result in 41 million deaths per year and are the leading causes of death globally. Common preventable risk factors, such as unhealthy diets and physical inactivity have long been recognised as important and preventable behavioural factors. Yet, it is less well known that several environmental factors, such as toxic metal pollution and ambient air pollution are also associated with non-communicable diseases. In this talk we discuss how the environment can impact NCDs, with a focus on Bangladesh.

There will be several short talks, followed by a short Q&A period.
