From the Back Cover:

Our environment and our health are two major concerns in today's society, and it is increasingly apparent that preservation and survival of both are ultimately linked. The Ecology of Health presents an extensive discussion of the ethics, issues, and choices currently emerging in health and ecology. This groundbreaking volume reflects on our concepts of self, health, and nature and how we perceive ourselves in relation to our bodies, our environment, and our beliefs about what is healthy. Contributors examine the public concerns and challenges inherent in linking health and environmental quality. They discuss issues such as environmental and occupational cancer, ionizing radiation, and rational public policy, and they debate environmental issues in relation to national and international public health. Challenging the principles of modern biomedicine, this informative volume presents alternative therapies in health such as aboriginal healing, yoga, and homeopathy. In addition, recovery fellowships, wilderness schools, biodynamic farming, and permaculture are examined for environmental preservation. The Ecology of Health is essential reading for anyone interested in going beyond the traditional biomedical model and into a holistic view of health. It is also highly recommended for professionals and students in the medical and health sciences, public health, and social work.
