Causes, Mechanisms and Prevention of Environmental Diseases

Harold I. Zeliger

The onset of non-communicable disease has been attributed in large part to environmental exposure to toxic chemicals, including persistent organic pollutants, volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds and transition metals. This review summarizes recent research into the causes and mechanisms of environmental disease onset and examines the role of oxidative stress as well as steps that can be taken to predict and lower the incidences of environmental diseases.
