Pooling the immense amounts of data that they have gathered, EEA and ECEH have distilled the resulting knowledge into a brief discussion of the contribution of environmental factors to the main causes of death in Europe, and an examination of three particularly significant issues.
The issues meet important criteria.
Each is a widespread problem that causes significant damage to the health of many people throughout Europe, and all are amenable to coordinated action that would result in both improved environmental quality and health benefits within a short time.
Delaying this action would increase the damage and make these problems harder to solve in the future.
