Solid Waste/Disease Relationships, A Literature Survey.
Hanks, Thrift G.
Presented is a comprehensive survey of the literature on the relationships between disease and solid wastes. Diseases are grouped on the basis of waste type or disease vector, such as chemical waste, human fecal waste, animal fecal waste, rodent-borne disease, mosquito-borne disease and miscellaneous communicable disease. The following format is used in postulating the solid waste/disease relationships: first, a general statement on the disease being considered; second, a postulation on the disease association with wastes; third, supporting evidence found in the literature; fourth, discussion of the evidence; fifth, conclusions and possible projections relating to disease, waste association; sixth, recommendation for research and other activities. Appendices include an extensive list with the following information: solid waste sources, resulting wastes and their composition, and means of treatment. Included is a list of descriptors and a bibliography with 755 entries. (PR)
