About the book

In this book, titled Environmental Health, we will have experts discussing factors that affect human health from the environment. The effects of global warming, PM2.5 and human diseases, air pollution, public nuisance, etc. will be described, including epidemiological viewpoints. As environmental toxicology, we will introduce experimental observations such as metals, asbestos, silica and nanomaterials. Sick-building, chemical sensitivity = CS, electromagnetic hypersensitivity, heatstrokeivity, etc. are all environmental diseases.

Infectious diseases are also important for the environment, and COVID-19, Ebola virus, Drug resistant bacteria, Tuberculosis and the like will be discussed. Metals, epigenetics, DOHaD theory, endocrine disruptors are described as having impact of environmental health across generations. In addition, irradiation, foods, smoking (including e-cigarette), and chemical substances are also important in relation to carcinogenesis.

A comprehensive description of the environment and human health will be gathered in this regard. In addition, in terms of environment and health, topics such as exposure to various occupational substances, and physical and mental stress may also fall into the category of topics.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Kristina Kardum Cvitan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
