Health, population, and environment are closely related to each other. If there is an effect on any of them, then the other two will adversely be affected. For example, if there is rapid population growth there is more utilization of natural resources. It causes environmental degradation. In such an environment, People cannon live a healthy life. Interrelationships among health, population, and environment can further be justified with the help of the following points:
- Physical aspect
Physical aspect includes nonliving beings such as air, water, land, statues of these natural resources determine the health of the people. If there is no environmental pollution, people are in good health. Otherwise, they suffer from different kinds of diseases.
- socio-cultural aspect
The socio-cultural aspect includes social norms and values. Religious and cultural heritages come under this aspect. These are parts of the environment. In Hindu culture, People regard Peeple as god Bishnu, the river as goddess Ganga, air as Bayo dev, and fire as Agni dev. Similarly, there is a need for different resources to carry out religious activities. We use water as jal, flowers as prasad, grains as Accheta.
- Biological aspect
Biological aspects include all living beings which includes plants and animals human beings need them to fulfill or needs. Plants provide them oxygen, food, and shelther. Animals are also sources of different needs of the people.
- Economic aspect
When people have low economic status, they depend on natural resources to fulfill their daily needs. It may lead to the exploitation of natural resources causing environmental degradation. People have poor health in such an environment.
- Political aspect
Politicians are responsible for making plans and policies. If plans and policies are not in favor of the environment, there is environmental degradation. On the contrary, if the plans and policies are in favor of the environment, the environment would be conserved.
- Psychological aspect
When people have a positive attitude towards the environment, they have a feeling of conserving environmental resources. But if they have negative attitudes towards the environment, they degrade the environment.
- Science and technological aspect
The use of technology determines the environmental situation. If the use of technology is in favor of the environment, It conserves and promotes the status of the environmental resources. Nuclear power can be taken as an example.
