This new book lays out the groundwork for a new approach to framing and understanding environmental health issues, especially those health conditions that are described as "Contested Illnesses" - breast cancer, asthma, and Gulf War-Related Illnesses. These three diseases and conditions have been important in terms of medicine, public health, basic science, politics, social movements and public awareness and provide vehicles for analyzing fundamental problems our society faces in terms of environmental health and in terms of our striving to create a just and healthy society. The author presents a new public paradigm for understanding the causes of these diseases and calls for a reevaluation of our reliance on traditional biomedical models of epidemiology and etiology of these and other public health issues.
