Earth Day: How do we prevent the destruction of our planet in today’s political environment
In this day and age we are confronted by global warming, Ebola, the Zika virus, lead in our water supply, enormous problems of infrastructure including aging sewer lines, water lines, electrical grids, roads and bridges, and the list goes on and on.
Best Practices for Environmental Health: Environmental Pollution, Protection, Quality and Sustainability is a one source major response to all the environmental issues that affect global health and the worldwide protection and preservation of the natural environment.
“Earth Day reminds of us as a community of nations, that the planet we live on is finite and that we as human beings have the responsibility to conserve its resources, prevent environmental pollution, protect the quality of our health, safety, and lives and sustain our natural environment to present it in a little better form, to our children and future generations, the wonders of the world that we inherited” says author Dr Herman Koren.
Dr Koren is Professor Emeritus of Environmental Health and Safety at Indiana State University. He is a highly experienced practitioner in both rural and urban environmental concerns of the field. Dr Koren has served with great distinction for the last 60 years in environmental health, safety, protection and sustainability, and has been an active Registered Environmental Health Specialist since 1961. His experiences include serving as District Environmental Health Supervisor of a 250,000 person district in Philadelphia, and as Chief of Environmental Health and Safety at Philadelphia General Hospital, Pennsylvania, United States.
This easy to read and highly usable book is an enormous resource for all environmental groups and people who are currently trying to improve the environmental literacy of our citizenry throughout the world. It is essential reading for all environmental and public health undergraduate students, as well as a fantastic overview for professionals in all environmental health, pollution and protection areas.
Topics range from children’s environmental health to food protection and technology, water and waste systems, infection control, bioterrorism and pandemic health emergencies, and HAZMAT. Plus, it includes an overview of the current state of the profession and sections on programmatic techniques. This book helps solve the problems of disease and injury by presenting expert, evidence-based best practices.
