Waste Incineration & Public Health

Waste Incineration & Public Health Lowest new price: $65.67
Lowest used price: $7.78
List price: $81.00
Author: National Research Council

Incineration has been used widely for waste disposal, including household, hazardous, and medical waste--but there is increasing public concern over the benefits of combusting the waste versus the health risk from pollutants emitted during combustion. Waste Incineration and Public Health informs the emerging debate with the most up-to-date information available on incineration, pollution, and human health--along with expert conclusions and recommendations for further research and improvement of such areas as risk communication. The committee provides details on:

  • Processes involved in incineration and how contaminants are released.
  • Environmental dynamics of contaminants and routes of human exposure.
  • Tools and approaches for assessing possible human health effects.
  • Scientific concerns pertinent to future regulatory actions.


The book also examines some of the social, psychological, and economic factors that affect the communities where incineration takes place and addresses the problem of uncertainty and variation in predicting the health effects of incineration processes.


Race And The Incidence Of Environmental Hazards: A Time For Discourse

Race And The Incidence Of Environmental Hazards: A Time For Discourse Lowest new price: $41.10
Lowest used price: $15.26
List price: $30.00
Author: Bunyan Bryant
Brand: Brand: Westview Press

This is a book about the poor and people of color and their struggle to take control of one of the most basic aspects of their lives: the quality of their environment. The authors tell us that we cannot assume that everyone is equally protected from harmful pollutants by laws or regulations. And, while conventional wisdom holds that the supposedly unempowered are also unconcerned about environmental quality issues, these people have found new and less conventional channels, such as the church and neighborhood groups, for advocating for environmental justice. Race and the Incidence of Environmental Hazards is dedicated to exposing the fact of environmental inequity and its consequences in the face of general neglect by policymakers, social scientists, and the public at large.This collection of sixteen articles, the majority of them written by scholars of color, reviews the differential impacts of environmental insults on people of color, such as the consumption of toxic fish from the Detroit River, fallout from hazardous waste incineration in Louisiana, pesticide exposure among farm workers, and the effects of uranium production in Navajo communities. Further, the authors illuminate the failure of traditional, political, economic, and environmental institutions to address these social and life-threatening conditions and advocate new approaches for creating environmental justice.
