(2015·呼和浩特第一次调研)Many people may be surprised by the number of chemicals that they are exposed to through everyday household products.

In a study 25 women had their homes and bodies tested for 89 environmental pollutants—including pesticides(杀虫剂) and chemicals found in plastics and cleaning products. On average 20 chemicals were found on their bodies or in their homes.

Much is unknown about the possible health effects of chemicals in everyday household products. But certain chemicals—like phthalates (邻苯二甲酸盐) found in plastics—have been linked to potential health risks, including higher risks of certain cancers, though the evidence mainly comes from research on lab animals. Other household chemicals are known to harm the skin, eyes and airways—and may worsen asthma(哮喘). Many more chemicals found remain untested.

Chemicals likely come from a range of sources, so it is not always clear how to reduce people’s exposure, according to Dr Rebecca Altman, the lead researcher on the new study.

In the original study, she noted, women were given advice based on the particular chemicals they were exposed to—such as using fragrance, free washing liquid and personal-care products.

For the current study, Altman and her colleagues interviewed two dozen women who’d taken part in the previous study to see how they would react to information about their household chemical exposures. They found that the women were generally surprised at the range of chemicals found in their homes and bodies. They were also surprised that even some banned things were found.

With many questions about the health effects of household chemicals unanswered, some experts worry

that giving people information about their everyday exposures will cause unnecessary fear. However, the researchers found that the women in their study were typically not alarmed,and instead wanted “more rather than less”information on the issue.

1.Which of the following statements about chemicals in household products is TRUE?

A.It is uncertain what effects some chemicals have on health.

B.Long term exposure to them is certain to cause a deadly illness.

C.In the study it was found that certain chemicals can cause cancers.

D.Some of them have bad effects on health, while some have good effects.

2.The underlined word “airways”in Paragraph 3 most probably refers to ________.A.things that look like fine threads growing in the body

B.the passage running from your nose and throat to the lungs

C.the passage between rows of rooms in a building

D.the area just inside the front door of a building

3.Why is it not clear how to reduce exposure to chemicals?

A.Because all everyday products contain chemicals.

B.Because much is unknown about the sources.

C.Because measures have not been tested for their effects.

D.Because chemicals come from a variety of sources.

4.According to Dr Rebecca Altman,________.

A.women were more likely to be harmed by chemicals

B.it is unnecessary to inform people about the study results

C.fragrant products may contain harmful chemicals

D.further study on everyday products should be done immediately

1.解析:选A。推理判断题。根据文章第三段第一句“Much is unknown about the possible health effects of chemicals in everyday household products.”,该段最后一句“Many more chemicals found remain untested.”及文章最后一段第一句“With many questions about the health effects of household chemicals unanswered...”可知,目前家居用品所含的化学成分对人的健康的影响还有很多是不确定的。故答案选A。

2.解析:选B。词义猜测题。首先,从构词法的角度来看,airways由air(空气)和ways(道路)构成。再根据其前所并列的skin,eyes可知,airways应该是身体的某组织或器官,再根据破折号后的“and may worsen asthma(哮喘)”可知,airways指的应是人的呼吸道。故答案选B。

3.解析:选D。细节理解题。根据文章第四段中“Chemicals likely come from a range of sources,so it is not always clear how to reduce people’s exposure”可知,可能的化学污染源太多、太广,因此尚不清楚要如何减少化学物质对人们的危害。故答案选D。

4.解析:选C。细节理解题。根据第五段“In the original study...given advice based on the particular chemicals they were exposed to—such as using fragrance,free washing...”可知,研究者们会根据妇女可能接触到的一些特殊的化学物质,如芳香剂、免费洗手液和其他个人护理产品提出一些建议。由此可知,有香味的产品可能会含有有害物质。故答案选C。



1.解析:选D。根据此空后的“landscaped yard with a nice little flower garden”可推断,此处表示“一个经过美化的漂亮的院子”。故选D项。smoothly意为“平稳地,顺畅地”;carelessly意为“粗心地”;roughly意为“粗略地”。

2.解析:选A。“我”想对这位投入时间和精力的园丁表达(express)感谢。recognize 意为“认出,识别”;design意为“设计”;accept意为“接受”。

10.解析:选C。根据语境中的“As soon as”和“grabbed”可知,此处应用quickly“迅速地”。slowly意为“缓慢地,慢慢地”;unwillingly意为“不情愿地”;shyly意为“害羞地”。



13.解析:选C。decorated“装饰的”;empty“空的”;packed“挤满人的”;deserted“空寂无人的”。根据空后的“and the people working in the kitchen seemed to be busy forever”可推断C项正确。
