Physicians for Social Responsibility, Environment and Health Program

This site provides an online community for health professionals and others interested in environmental health and gives users the opportunity to access important resources about public health. Topics include children's environmental health, air pollution, climate change, energy, chronic disease and the environment, drinking water, land use, and toxins such as pesticides, heavy metals, and persistent organic pollutants. The site features fact sheets, reports, publications, and updates on current research and legislation.
