  1. Environmental integrity, racism and health.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    WHO/ISEE International Workshop. Research Triangle Park, North Carolina USA, 1994/09/16.

    Environmental degradation seriously affects human health.

    Thus, a close relationship exists between the protection of ecosystem integrity and wilderness on one hand, and human health on the other.

    However, there is an overarching, holistic perspective in laws and regulations - as well as morality - to maintain a healthy relationship between the two.

    Problem areas focused on in this paper are :

    • (a) climate change and global warming ;

    • (b) food production ;

    • and (c) global equity.

    This paper argues for the principle of integrity, which provides an holistic perspective, suggested as a better approach than that of current regulations to mitigate against associated threats to human health.
