Environmental Health Sourcebook, Third Edition, offers updated information about the effects of the environment on human health. It discusses specific populations-including pregnant women and their fetuses, children, the elderly, and minorities-in which the effects of environmental exposures are especially harmful and, in some cases, can have a lasting impact that extends to future generations. Airborne, waterborne, foodborne, and chemical hazards are discussed, and facts about cancer, respiratory problems, infertility, autism, and other diseases with suspected environmental triggers are presented. A section on consumer products and medical hazards examines health risks associated with some common household items. The book concludes with a glossary and a directory of resources for additional information.
