While covering all the traditional Environmental Health topics, this text is uniquely structured around the things we do 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. It 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 offers new data and case studies, as well as a new “What Can I Do?” sidebar series throughout the chapters.
