This book examines the health effects of waste deposit sites,
incinerators and other options for waste management, focusing in
particular on the impacts of halogenated hydrocarbons, and byproducts of
incineration. These results are linked with waste policy options, of
which reviews in four EU countries and the United States are provided.
Scientific arguments which can be used in an environmental health-based
waste policy in the future are advocated.
This volume contains the proceedings of a workshop which was organized
at the Hippocrates Foundation in Kos, Greece, on November 12?14, 1998,
as an integral part of the ASPIS project, which aims at raising
awareness of environmental health impacts and educating decision-makers.
As such, this work addresses a wide, multidisciplinary readership,
including environmental decision-makers, medical doctors, environmental
experts, postgraduate students, lawyers, engineers, and journalists.
