Description

Canadians enjoy their beautiful surroundings, but they do have concerns about environmental hazards that may affect their health. This book offers help in understanding the issues and risks. Open The Canadian Guide to Health and the Environment and you'll quickly find clear, balanced information to help answer your questions about the following topics and more: global warming, drinking water, irradiated food, deforestation, asthma, sick-building syndrome, noise, sun tanning, cancer, PCBs. The handy 'What You Can Do' sections suggest how to tackle issues in ways that suit your particular situation. Educator and public-health physician Tee L Guidotti -- with the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment and a host of expert contributors -- walks you through the many issues linking the environment and your health. Use the Guide as a reference to specific topics, a readable overview of environmental health concerns, or a learning tool for students, parents, and families. The Guide includes: a quick-access glossary; a bibliography of helpful publications, plus dozens of references to books, agencies, and internet sites you can explore for further information; a series of quizzes and games to check your environmental knowledge; and an index for easy reference. The Canadian Guide to Health and the Environment will help you make decisions that are right for you and your family -- and good for our environment.
