各位努力預備緊DSE英文嘅同學仔喺paper1-4都有機會遇到有關「健康」嘅題目,我哋會成日講危害健康,除咗可以用’harm’之外,知唔知仲有咩生字可以表達得更準確又唔洗咁悶又呢?

 

1. Jeopardy 危險

一般情況下,我哋慣用put someone/something in jeopardy,強調處於危險之中。

 

Smoking should be discouraged as it can potentially put your health in jeopardy.

吸煙應受到勸阻,因為它會危害到你的健康。

 

2. Peril 巨大的危險

 

The typhoon signal No.8 is going to be hoisted, to avoid peril, you should find a safe place to stay.

天文台在懸掛八號風球,你應逗留在安全的地方,以免遇到巨大的危險。

 

當見到有人話do something at your peril,意思就係即使冒著危險,都要完成某件事。

 

3. Hazard 危害/隱憂

 

People should protect the wildlife as sewage or oil pollution is a hazard to the animals.

人們應該要好好保護野生動物,因為污水、油污對牠們而言是一種危害。

 

另外,moral hazard有道德風險嘅意思,例如:

Some conservatives oppose the Gay Games for fear of moral hazard.

一些保守派人士礙於道德風險,反對同性戀運動會。

 

4. Detriment 危害

 

When junk food is consumed too often, it will be a detriment to health.

經常攝取垃圾食品會危害身體健康。
