The term "environment and health" encompasses the health consequences of interactions between human populations and the whole range of factors in their physical - natural and man-made - and social environment. The interdependence of health, development and environment is manifold and complex, but two aspects predominate: how well the environment can sustain life and health, and how free the environment is of hazards to health. -- World Health Organization
