'' Environmental diseases (microbial agents, ionizing and non-ionizing radiation). '' Applications and domains of environmental health (water and air quality, food safety, waste disposal, and occupational health).With a straightforward, non-technical approach, the author has included many examples and illustrations of environmental health issues.
