Book Description

Essentials of Medical Geology (PDF) reviews the practical tools and essential concepts required to tackle environmental and public health problems. It is organized into 4 main sections. The first section deals with the fundamentals of environmental biology; the natural and anthropogenic sources of health elements that impact health; and illustrate key biogeochemical transformations. The second section looks at the geological processes influencing human exposure to specific elements; such as arsenic; fluorine; radon; selenium; and iodine. The third section presents the techniques oand concepts of toxicology; pathology; and epidemiology that underpin investigations into the human health effects of exposure to naturally occurring elements. The fourth section provides a toolbox of analytical approaches to environmental research and medical geology investigations.

Essentials of Medical Geology was first published in 2005 and has since won 3 prestigious rewards. The ebook has been recognized as a key book in both geology and medical fields and is widely used as a textbook and reference book in these fields.

For this new revised edition; authors and editors have updated the content that evolved a lot during 2005 and added 2 new chapters; on agriculture and health; and public health. This updated volume can now continue to be used as a reference ebook and textbook for all who are interested in this important topic and its impact on the wellbeing and health of many millions of people all over the world.
