Environmental Health: How the World Affects Us

November 03, 2009

The field of environmental health examines how aspects of our natural and built environments affect our health. Environmental health scientists spend their time assessing risks in the environment, such as air pollution, toxic chemicals, hazardous waste and polluted water, and mitigating them. Emerging issues include how the built environment contributes to obesity and asthma and the potential health hazards of nanotechnology, global warming and genetically modified foods.
