(11/9/05) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has launched a new Webpage in Spanish dedicated to providing information on different environmental issues and their effects among Hispanics residing in the United States. The new page, "El medio ambiente y su salud", The Environment and Your Health, will focus on a different issue every month. For the first month in this series the key issue is asthma. In this new page, EPA offers general information about the disease, its environmental triggers, asthma FAQs, and environmental health studies of Hispanics and asthma.
In future months EPA will have similar pages on other environmental health issues of special concern to Hispanics such as lead poisoning prevention, radon, carbon monoxide, particulate matter, and mold, among others. This new Webpage presents information both in Spanish and English. It is part of the agency's overall efforts to educate Hispanics, researchers and health care providers on how environmental health issues affect the different Hispanic communities throughout the nation.
