Summary Living with the Earth: Concepts in Environmental Health Science- A Web-Enhanced Book incorporates traditional concepts in environmental and health science with new, emerging, and controversial issues associated with environmental threats to human health and ecology. Opposing scientific views on major issues such as global warming, overpopulation, the causes of cancer, endocrine disrupters, and many other issues are presented with a balanced and objective view. The book has a technological edge because it is web-enhanced -- with a website kept current by the author -- making it a "living" environmental health book.
