Le mal du dehors

The Evil Outside

The impact of the environment on health


R. Slama

Edition 2017

Perchlorate, nonylphenol, ultraviolet rays, ozone, DDT, climate change ... This book provides for the first time a comprehensive overview of environmental pollutants and their effects on human health. Their visible health consequences, but also the unseen ones, are presented with great clarity. By providing specific examples of how the risks posed by some of these products are managed, it highlights the very different ways in which our society deals with health threats.
