Environmental health

Which environmental influences could have a positive or negative effect on health?

Take, for example, issues such as exposure to asbestos, particulate matter or hormone disruptors.
Other Health Council publications within this area of activity focus on matters including the quality of the indoor environment of homes and schools and the link between the organisation of the living environment and regular exercise.

Continual activities within this focus area include:

  • identifying developments in the field of health and the environment
  • assessing the risks of electromagnetic fields (Annual Update on Electromagnetic Fields).
