What is Environmental Health?
Environmental health is the study of the chemical, biological and physical factors in our environment that positively or negatively impact human health. It encompasses the assessment and control of those environmental factors in our air, water, soil, homes and workplaces, and is targeted towards preventing disease and creating healthy environments.
