Environmental Health presents the interaction of man and his environment as it affects his physical and mental health as well as social well-being. This book provides a detailed review of man–environment–health interrelationships and a basic background for those working in any environmental health discipline. Organized into 12 chapters, this book begins with an overview of environmental health as the aspect of public health that is concerned with those forms of life, forces, substances, and conditions in the surrounding of man that may exert an influence on man's well-being and health. This text then examines the health hazards associated with certain occupations. Other chapters consider the health aspects of housing and its environment. This book discusses as well the nature of environmental hazards and the relationships of environment and health of man. The final chapter deals with the overall perspective for the planning and management of the environment. This book is a valuable resource for individuals working in the environmental health sciences.
