Environmental Health Problems.
Environmental Health Service (DHEW/PHS), Rockville, MD.
Aimed at a society which is forced to make decisions relative to their total environment, this pamphlet discusses a few of the problems associated with restoring and maintaining an environmental relationship conducive to the health and well-being of man. The topics covered include: air pollution, noise, solid waste, the urban environment, drinking water, radiation, and the health of workers. For each, a discussion is given of the problem, the effects on human health and welfare, control possibilities, and the federal programs related to it. One chapter is devoted to what experts say on these problems, and another contains an explanatory listing of organizations concerned with environmental problems. A partially annotated bibliography follows. (BL)
