Comments "Environmental Health and Planetary health Science"
Our life is closely related to various environmental factors (substances). These environmental factors convince our lives as well as alter patterns of disease and health. We quantitatively evaluate the positive/negative health effects of these factors using environmental epidemiology (risk assessment). Based on that evidence, we then estimate how much impact is occurred in the community (Health impact assessment). Since these environmental factors have spread across national borders, and similar environmental problems frequently occur in many countries. I'm collaborating with environmental epidemiologists and other scientists, we try to provide scientific evidence in environmental global health.
Through these efforts, we aim to build a research platform for planetary health, in which we consider total health that includes not only human health, but also healthy social systems, and the healthy state of natural systems.
