The price we pay for these riches is the deterioration in our health and the emergence of disabling and killer diseases, many of which are of our own making.
By analyzing ways in which industrial and agricultural bodies can take preventative and remedial action to reduce pollution and the use of chemicals and eliminate the problem of hazardous waste products-in other words, managing our environment responsibly - the journal presents major research findings, warnings of potential dangers to health, and suggestions for different codes of practice to safeguard our environment and health.
