Health Effects of Environmental Pollution.
Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC.
This booklet notes that for a long time the American people were willing to pay any price for progress. Now may refuse to accept an environment that menaces their health and lowers their enjoyment of life. They are embracing a new environmental consciousness, a broader vision of reality, a more profound sense of their place in nature. Among the topics discussed are the health effects of environmental pollution, noise, water pollution, solid wastes, air pollution and its chronic effects, odors, pesticides, radiation, carcinogens, teratogens, and mutagens. The decade of the 70's is showing that a new environmental ethic does exist in the hearts and minds of the American people and it is the matchless opportunity of this generation to begin the restoration of environmental quality and the protection of health.
