Environmental Stress Theory

Environmental stress theory suggests that stressors found in the environment such as radiation, physical structure, non-ergonomic furniture, natural disasters, pollution, illnesses, and climate change significantly affect the health of individuals and social groups. For instance, a report stated that the presence of industrial chemicals has led to a global pandemic of neurodevelopmental toxicity. Also, another study concluded that those who are usually exposed to traffic noise have higher levels of stress hormones.
