About

Overview

The Gale Encyclopedia Of Environmental Health contains information on catastrophic events - how, where, when, why each of these environmental disasters occurred - what impact the event has and the kinds of health issues that arose from the event, how to identify the health issues, and how to treat the conditions through tests, treatments, therapy, and public health response. This product describes the immediate public health response and the long-term public health needs (progress, challenges, etc). As well as covering events, The Gale Encyclopedia Of Environmental Health covers environmental health statutes, diseases/conditions, environmental factors contributing to public health issues, and environmental health policy issues, as well as offering biographical sidebars on key figures and historical events in environmental health.
