Environmental health is a relevant topic to everyone. The recent effects of climate change can be seen through more frequent and severe drought, severe flooding, and catastrophic weather events. Growing globalization spreads disease faster than ever, such as in the cases of COVID-19 and mop. The World Health Organization estimates that 24% of all global deaths are attributed to the environment. With over 930 million people spending at least 10% of their household budget to pay for health care, the third edition of The Gale Encyclopedia of Environmental Health provides reliable information about the causes, symptoms, and treatments of environmental health conditions and infectious diseases. Because of the connection between environment and health provides reason for social justice and legislation to minimize impacts and improve health, this title also addresses issues of clean air, clean water, food insecurity, and impacts when natural resources are not protected and available to all. Easy-to-read without the use of technical jargon, entries are thorough, well organized, and enhanced with color photos and illustrations.
