Description - Six Modern Plagues and How We Are Causing Them by Mark Jerome Walters

The first book for the general reader that connects emerging health risks and their ecological origins. Draws on new research, interviews, and the author's own investigations to weave together a compelling argument: that changes humans have made to the environment, from warming the climate to clearing the forests, have contributed to, if not caused a rising tide of diseases that are afflicting humans and many other species.
