Geology and health : closing the gap by H. Catherine W Skinner( Book )
10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Geology and Health is an integrated collection of papers from earth scientists, biologists, and medical specialists on health issues of concern to people worldwide, demonstrating how human health and well-being now and in the future can benefit through coordinated scientific efforts. International example of dusts, coal, arsenic, fluorine, lead, mercury, and waterborne chemicals that have affected health are among the cases documented and explored. They illustrate how hazards and potential hazards may come from natural materials and processes and how human-induced changes have contributed to disease and debilitation from naturally occurring materials. Introductory essays by the editors highlight some of the progress toward scientific integration that could be applied elsewhere. Increased collaboration between earth and health scientists could benefit communities and individuals in many countries. Effective solutions to combat present and future hazards will arise when the full scope of human interactions with the total environment is understood by decision-makers whose choices will have long-term impacts. The book demonstrates the virtues of cooperation between the earth, life, and health sciences as a practical and effective approach to better public health worldwide."--BOOK JACKET
