how does computer recycling affect public health costs?

by:Rocket PCB     2019-11-07
Improper recycling of electronic products and sending them to landfill sites or incineration will release highly toxic chemicals and heavy metals into the environment.
This threatens the health of human beings and all living things.
Some of the hazardous chemicals and heavy metals released into the atmosphere are lead mercury, cadmium, dioxin and bromide flame retardant.
Electronic devices such as television and computer monitors, printers, video recorders, mobile phones, telephones, radios and microwave ovens usually contain heavy metals such as lead, copper, cadmium and chromium.
Lead is one of the most toxic metals present in television and computer monitors.
From the central nervous system to the kidneys and reproductive system, lead can affect almost every part of the body.
It is particularly harmful to the nervous system of children.
At high levels, lead may reduce the rapid reflex response, resulting in weakness of the fingers, wrists, or ankles, and can affect memory.
Bromo flame retardant was found in printed circuit boards, plastic covers and cables, and in the plastic covers of the TV set.
We do not understand the adverse effects on the BR flame retardant as we do with lead and mercury.
However, studies have shown that one of the flame retardant-polybromo dibenzene (PDBE)
Probably endocrine disruptors.
Another kind of flame retardant polymethyl bromide (PBB)
It may increase the risk of cancer in the digestive and lymphatic systems.
If we don\'t make sure the electronics are properly recycled, if we just discard it, it will end up filling up or burning.
These carcinogens then penetrate into the soil and air.
They will eventually find a way into the food supply.
Hexchromium or chromium VI is a protective device for galvanized steel plates.
Chromium can damage DNA and cause bronchitis and asthma.
When they penetrate into the soil of the landfill, or when E-Mail
The garbage was burned.
CD is present in chip resistors, infrared detectors and semiconductors.
Cadmium can accumulate in the kidneys and have a negative impact on the kidneys.
Cadmium is persistent, accumulated in the body, and toxic.
The main way we touch it is through breathing and food.
Mercury is a toxic metal that can cause harm to people and animals, including nerve damage and birth defects.
If mercury is released into the environment, it will pollute the air we breathe, enter streams, rivers and seas, and pollute the fish people eat.
The intake of Mercury is almost completely absorbed into the blood, distributed to all tissues, including the brain, and easily enters the fetus through the placenta.
Mercury is associated with learning disabilities, behavioral difficulties, low IQ, and many other diseases.
When the distributed inorganic arsenic may be released into air or water, arsenic is a naturally occurring element.
When lead is contained, arsenic is released into the air.
The garbage was burned.
Inhalation of Arsenic cream may cause sore throat or discomfort in the lungs.
A large intake of arsenic can lead to death.
If measures are not taken quickly, the impact of incorrect recycling of e-waste will have a very negative impact on public health.
In this electronic age, newer, faster and better electronic products are produced almost every day, our electronic products
Waste doubled and tripled at the same rate. E-
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, garbage is the fastest growing solid waste logistics in the United States.
Without doing everything we can to ensure that most of the e-waste is recycled in the way it is expected, we will destroy the environment and we will face huge public health problems.
If smart solutions are not found, the cost of human life and financial costs will be huge.
