Merchandise Description
Monroe T. Morgan (2003)

Environmental health not only covers the environmental sciences but also the human population. This book emphasizes the environmental practices that support human life as well as the need to control factors that are harmful to human life. Chapters focus on the requisites of life, water, air, food, space, and shelter. Chapters also address proper management of wastewater treatment, solid waste management, insect and rodent control, and agents that cause diseases. The top environmentalists from around the world contribute a chapter in their area of expertise to form the most comprehensive text available.

Environmental Health includes:
  • increased and integrated global coverage of environmental health topics, including new-world population charts and statistics and expanded discussion of global diseases and global air pollution control;
  • new topics and research on the West Nile virus, national and international environmental politics, environmental ethics, Healthy People 2010, space as a new environment, soils and its uses, water and its uses, home safety devices, nuclear energy, expanded discussions of diseases, and ecosystems and communities of species;
  • an updated appendix of environmental organizations, with current Web URLs that link readers to the best resources the Web has to offer; and
  • a new “Key Terms" section in every chapter, with page references to facilitate study.
The author emphasize the need for, and ways of providing, the requirements for human life—air, water, food, a favorable temperature, space, and the absence of toxic and other hazardous materials—making this an all-encompassing text, full of topics related to the important issues surrounding environmental health. The text covers the principles on every environmental health program, giving readers a better understanding of the various programs and their individual purposes and goals.

Environmental Health is a study reference for NEHA's REHS/RS exam.
