Environmental Medicine, Second Edition stresses the importance of the medicine of the environment and emphasizes the advantages which must emanate from a multidisciplinary approach to the method in which environmental factors impinge on the health and wellbeing of the human race.

The selection first offers information on the environment, its influences, and hazards to health and trace element concentrations in various environments. Discussions focus on the possible relationships between trace element imbalances and diseases; biological concentration of trace elements; variable relationships between trace elements in soils and vegetables; and trace element concentrations in mining areas. The text then ponders on radiation and health hazards and water in relation to human disease.

The manuscript underscores the relationship of weather and climate to health and disease and air pollution in relation to human disease. Topics include effect of meteorological stimuli on normal physiological processes in healthy subjects; effect of weather and climate on miscellaneous biological phenomena in man; and therapeutic applications of human biometeorology. The ecological approach to pesticides and its importance to human disease and the patterns of infectious diseases in developed countries in relation to environmental factors are also discussed.

The selection is a dependable source material for health experts and readers interested in environmental medicine.
