In a present where there are countless opportunities for the spread of exotic diseases, the expansion and creation of far more illness in our global population through globalization and rapid transportation, and the contamination of water, air and land, we find ourselves accountable. We are confronted by global warming, Ebola, the Zika virus, lead in our water supply, enormous problems of infrastructure including aging sewer lines, water lines, electrical grids, roads and bridges, and the list goes on and on.
Best Practices for Environmental Health: Environmental Pollution, Protection, Quality and Sustainability is a one source major response to all of the environmental issues that affect global health and the worldwide protection and preservation of the natural environment. The book written by Herman Koren HSD, MPH, DLAAS, REHS, a Professor Emeritus Health and Safety at the Indiana State University compiles broad-based and comprehensive coverage of environmental topics, broken down by specialized fields.
Topics range from children’s environmental health to food protection and technology, water and waste systems, infection control, bioterrorism and pandemic health emergencies, and HAZMAT. Plus, it includes an overview of the current state of the profession and sections on programmatic techniques. This book helps solve the problems of disease and injury by presenting expert, evidence-based best practices.
This first of the kind handbook is essential reading for all environmental and public health undergraduate students, as well as a fantastic overview for professionals in all environmental health, pollution and protection areas.
This book is excellent for environmental health students, public health students, industrial hygiene students, and professionals in all three areas, since it covers all areas of environmental concerns and environmental programs, their interrelationship, statements of the problem and best practices which have been utilized in actual practice by a large number of our colleagues.

The author has purposely left out the science and technology and these can be found in his numerous endnotes and in his Handbooks of Environmental Health, volume 1 and volume 2, fourth edition which has been used for many many years by environmental health, public health and occupational health students and professionals. The Handbooks are recommended by the National Environmental Health Association for anyone who is seeking national Registered Environmental Health Specialist/Registered Sanitarian Credentials in the United States and elsewhere. One other source for the science and technology is the second edition of my Illustrated Dictionary and Resource Directory of Environmental and Occupational Health.
