This volume addresses issues related to the threats to human health from exposure to environmental pollutants in the Pacific Region, including how to reduce the production of such pollutants and remove or destroy them when they are produced. It specifically explores how to monitor levels of exposure in human populations and how to evaluate the health consequences of these exposures. Chapters explore the relationships between air quality and asthma, environmental contamination and breast cancer, mercury and neurobehavioral problems, and present information on new technologies for hazardous substance remediation.
