Minerals and Human Health

by Larissa Dobrzhinetskaya
Publication Date: 30/05/2015
RRP  $78.10 $76.25
Minerals and Human Health is written in response to the demand for additional knowledge about global climate change, the industrial contamination of water reservoirs, and epidemiological intoxication from industrial hazards related to the use of mineral resources.

The book addresses issues associated with the physical and geological processes of the Earth, the sustainability and fragility of the Earth's resources, and the interplay between health, industrial activities, and environments. It combines mineralogy, medicine, and the environmental, life, and political sciences to develop solutions to ease human suffering from geological toxicity.

Minerals and Human Health helps students to understand the Earth's activities and the unique resources that sustain life and facilitate industrial progress. The text teaches readers how the dispersal of geological materials effects the human population.

In-book quizzes allow students to assess their own progress. Questions for discussion and review encourage critical thinking and debate and support retention.

Minerals and Human Health can be used in courses on earth and environmental sciences, geopollution, and geochemistry.
