Environmental Health
From Global to Local
Second edition
edited by Howard Frumkin

The second edition of Environmental Health: From Global to Local covers the methodology and paradigms of this burgeoning field, ranging from ecology to epidemiology, from toxicology to environmental psychology, and from genetics to ethics.

The book discusses the major issues in contemporary environmental health: air, water, food safety, occupational health, radiation, chemical and physical hazards, vector control, and injuries.

Also emphasizing a wide variety of issues of global interest, the thoroughly revised second edition contains updated information on such timely topics as toxicology, exposure assessment, climate change, population pressure, developing nations and urbanization, energy production, building and community design, solid and hazardous waste, and disaster preparedness.

In addition, each chapter includes learning objectives, key points, and discussion questions.
