Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to "meet" you in the 2nd International Electronic Conference on Environmental Health Sciences.

The risk assessment of the effects of environmental pollutants was essential in the 2018 conference. We are also open to this subject this year. In addition, we will have a grander global perspective, and have expanded the main themes to be selected by the authors. The section leads have also been carefully selected. Papers will be subject to a thorough review by the most skilled scientists of our time.

The health of the next generation is of great interest to us. This makes it necessary to continuously monitor environmental pollution and related potential health effects. The information gathered from risk assessment studies is also important for policymakers to identify preventive measures to adopt at both population and individual levels. The precautionary principle should be the basis of all environmental health science approaches based on newly acquired knowledge, including risk assessments and the definition of strategies to reduce contaminant exposure to humans. This conference creates a unique opportunity to discuss any subject related to environment and health issues. The Chair and the Scientific Committee heartily welcome you and look forward to your full submissions to the Special Issue.

Prof. Dr. Jon Øyvind Odland
Guest Editor
