Environmental influences on human health include the effects of toxic materials and adverse ecological factors. Natural milieu stressors also affect emotions that may adversely affect cardiovascular function and precipitate or otherwise contribute to complications of cardiovascular diseases. However, although variously hypothesized, there is inadequate evidence that they directly contribute to the pathogenesis of sustained hypertension or coronary atherosclerosis.
