Study methods and application

Air pollution, water contamination, persistent organic pollutants, pesticides, metals, and radiofrequencies are just some examples of environmental factors that have been linked to adverse health effects such as cancer, respiratory disease and reproductive disease. Environmental epidemiology studies the interaction of disease and these environmental determinants of disease at a population level.This book describes the methods of environmental
epidemiology, with the emphasis on good practice. It outlines the basic principles of epidemiology and environmental health, and describes in more detail special environmental epidemiological designs.
It also looks at the principles of health risk assessment and forecasting, the application of study data in these type of studies, practical issues in the conduct of studies, ethical issues, and the role of environmental epidemiology in policy making.
