Book Description

“Our Global Environment: A Health Perspective,” now in its 8th edition, remains an unparalleled and indispensable resource for anyone seeking a comprehensive understanding of environmental health. Authored by Anne Nadakavukaren, a renowned authority in the field, and coauthored by Jack Caravanos, this textbook has earned its reputation as the quintessential introduction to the intricate relationship between human health and the environment.

In this latest edition, Nadakavukaren and Caravanos continue to delve into the vital and intricate interdependence between humanity and our environment. They explore the manifold ways in which human activities have shaped, affected, and, at times, degraded the environment, leading to far-reaching consequences for both natural ecosystems and human health and well-being.

One of the hallmark features of this edition is its responsiveness to the most pressing global issues of our time. With engaging and articulate prose, the authors confront issues ranging from climate change and its profound public health impacts to the ever-escalating concern of global hunger and malnutrition. They also tackle contemporary crises, such as the Zika virus outbreak, the health implications of vaping, and the serious consequences of MTBE groundwater contamination.

Furthermore, this edition offers a comprehensive examination of the health hazards faced by those at the forefront of environmental challenges, including artisanal gold miners exposed to mercury and communities grappling with lead-contaminated drinking water, notably the situation in Flint, Michigan. These real-world case studies underscore the urgency of addressing environmental health issues and serve as a catalyst for action.

A notable addition to this edition is the dedicated chapter on climate change, emphasizing the public health repercussions of global warming. Drawing on the latest assessments from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the authors provide insights into the physical science behind climate change, mitigation efforts, and strategies for adaptation.

In summary, “Our Global Environment: A Health Perspective,” 8th Edition, stands as an exceptional and timely resource. It not only elucidates the complex interplay between humans and the environment but also underscores the critical importance of addressing environmental health issues for the well-being of both individuals and our planet. With its comprehensive coverage, engaging style, and unwavering commitment to staying current with global challenges, this textbook is an invaluable asset for students, educators, policymakers, and anyone concerned about the future of our global environment.
