Merchandise Description

Herman Koren and Michael Bisesi (2003)

The Handbook of Environmental Health is a must for the reference library of anyone with environmental concerns. Written by experts in the field and co-published with the National Environmental Health Association, this two-set volume continues to be a valuable college textbook and major information resource on environmental issues. Completely revised and expanded to reflect the latest developments and discoveries in this constantly changing and evolving field, the fourth edition continues to provide a basis for understanding the interaction between humans and the environment and how such interactions affect the health and welfare of individuals.

Focusing on factors that are generally associated with the internal environment, Volume 1 begins by providing a significant understanding of basic new environmental issues, energy, practical microbiology and chemistry, risk assessment, emerging infectious diseases, recent laws, emerging microorganisms, toxicology, epidemiology, human physiology, and the effects of the environment on humans. The remainder of the chapters discuss a variety of indoor environmental issues, including food safety, food technology, insect and rodent control, indoor air quality, hospital environment, home environment, injury control, pesticides, industrial hygiene, and instrumentation. Study reference for NEHA's REHS/RS and CP-FS exams.
794 pages, hardback.
