Comparative Quantification of Health Risks

Global and Regional Burden of Disease Attribution to Selected Major Risk Factors

Over the centuries, human health has improved because science has helped us understand the main causes of disease affecting populations. At the same time, the broader, policy-relevant issue of population exposure to risks has remained under-explored relative to documentation of established diseases.

This CD Rom provides a comprehensive assessment of the scientific evidence on prevalence and the resulting health effects of a range of exposures that are known to be hazardous to human health.
