Book Description

This revised and updated edition of Essentials of Medical Geology (PDF) examines the fundamental concepts and operational tools that are necessary to address concerns pertaining to environmental and public health. It is broken down into 4 primary parts or sections. In the first section, we will cover the principles of environmental biology, as well as the natural and anthropogenic sources of health components that have an impact on health, and we will also highlight important biogeochemical changes. The second section discusses the geological processes that have an effect on human exposure to specific elements, such as radon, fluorine, selenium, arsenic, and iodine. Investigations investigating the effects of exposure to naturally occurring components on human health can be aided by the concepts and methodologies presented in the third section. These are drawn from the fields of pathology, toxicology, and epidemiology. The final lesson provides a toolkit full of analytical strategies that can be used for medical geology investigations as well as environmental study.

The first edition of Essentials of Medical Geology was published in 2005, and it has since been honored with three important awards. The book is widely utilized as a textbook and a reference book in the domains of geology and medicine, where it has been hailed as an important publication for both of those disciplines.
