Environmental Health Risk VII contains contributions presented at the Seventh International Conference on the Impact of Environmental Factors on Health. The successful biennial series began in 1997 and covers health problems related to the environment, which are causing increasing concern all over the world. Important to the public health is Society’s ability to ensure good quality air, water, soil, and food and to eliminate or considerably reduce hazards from the human environment. That ability greatly depends on the development of techniques, both modelling and interpretive, that allow decision-makers to assess the risk posed by various factors and to propose improvements.
The book covers such topics as: Risk Prevention and Monitoring; Occupational Health; Air Pollution; Social, Economic and Planning Issues; Food Safety; Environmental Education and Risk Abatement; Waste and Wastewater Issues.
