Living environment

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

Various issues are considered, such as exposure to asbestos, particulate matter or hormone disruptors. Other Health Council publications within this domain address topics like the quality of the indoor environment of homes and schools, as well as the relationship 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 associated with electromagnetic fields.
