Book Description

July 1, 2011 0674047400 978-0674047402 4

Dramatic changes in the field of environmental health since the Third Edition was published in 2004 demand a new, radically updated version of this essential textbook.

Based on the recommendations of advisory bodies and federal agency regulations, as well as a thorough review of the scientific literature, Moeller’s Fourth Edition is the only fully current text in this burgeoning field. It features new tables and figures, and revisions of those retained from previous editions. Environmental Health is also enriched with the knowledge and insights of professionals who are deeply involved in “real world” aspects of each subject covered.

In eighteen chapters, students receive a complete but manageable introduction to the complex nature of the environment, how humans interact with it, and the mutual impact between people and the environments where they work or live. This new edition emphasizes the challenges students will face in the field: the local and global implications of environmental health initiatives, their short- and long-range effects, their importance to both developing and developed nations, and the roles individuals can play in helping to resolve these problems.

Whether discussing toxicology, injury prevention, risk assessment, and ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, or more traditional subjects like the management and control of air, water, and food, Dade Moeller emphasizes the need for a systems approach to analyzing new projects prior to their construction and operation.

Environmental Health is indispensable reading for practitioners, students, and anyone considering a career in public health.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have and keep March 20, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I made the silly mistake of selling this book back after I used it for my course. I wondered why I got so much money for selling it back but now I realize was an easy read and very informative. It is used in a variety of courses as a reference and it is completely comprehensive with information. It is small and easy to carry and well worth whatever price is on it (under $100). It read almost like a novel and Dade W. Moeller was very inventive in his writing so as to allow the reader to understand the importance of environmental health. One of the best text books yet.

This is a very good textbook, reviewing all aspects of environmental health. I would have given it 5 stars if it was not for the Wikipedia citations & references.
