Your health is a product of your genetics, lifestyle and environment. This month the NNLM Reading Club examines the third component of that critical trio.
Environmental health plays a role in a host of social issues facing our society, from how to ensure drinking water is safe, to what kinds of risks we should take in our pursuit of fossil fuels, to how much we should rely on plastic as a cheap and convenient answer for logistical problems. September’s Reading Club selections will spur conversations on environmental health with reliable and thought-provoking information.
Visit the NNLM Reading Club to learn more about these titles and to find information on environmental health from the National Library of Medicine and other authoritative sources.
