Your Environment Affecting Your Health

Stay aware of where you are and your exposure to disease or injury. Learn about safety and prevention in your workplace, home, and more.


CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) plans, directs, and coordinates a  program to protect the American people from environmental hazards.  We promote a healthy environment and  prevent premature death,  avoidable illness and disability caused by non-infectious, non-occupational environmental and related factors. We are especially committed to safeguarding the health of vunerable populations –such as children, the elderly, and people with disabilities –from certain environmental hazards.

EPA provides information on the environmental hazards that can threaten our health in our everyday lives. Keep informed about how you can keep yourself and your family healthy and safe.
