About this book

This innovative text takes a unique approach to presenting environmental health. Rather than organizing topics around the traditional regulatory fields (air and water pollution, hazardous wastes, radiation, etc.), Understanding Environmental Health: How We Live in the World is structured around the choices we make as individuals and societies that result in environmental health hazards. The author details the hazards of energy production, industry, food production, and the modern lifestyle, while exploring our place within the local and global community. Unlike other texts of its kind, Understanding Environmental Health: How We Live in the World, tells a connected narrative, making the text engaging and accessible to a broad range of students with a variety of scientific backgrounds.

The Second Edition is a thorough revision that incorporates updates to scientific understanding, changes in practice and policy, and important events of recent years.
