Special Issue Information
An estimated one quarter of death and disease globally is related to environmental hazards (WHO, 2021). From the quality of the air we breathe to the condition of the food we eat, environmental factors can have a significant effect on our health. The environmental factors will evolve due to activities of nature and human beings. Meanwhile, the environmental factors are also a root cause of a significant disease burden of human. Therefore, elaborate assessment of environmental/human health risks are imperative and urgent needed.
The environmental health risks are usually evaluated by the ecological risk assessment which is the process for evaluating how likely it is that the environment might be obstructed as a result of exposure to environmental stressors. Its quantitative assessment steps including: problem formulation, analysis, and risk characterization. The risk assessment of health of human beings is the process to estimate the probability of adverse health effects in humans who may be exposed to contaminated environmental condition. Its quantitative assessment steps including: hazard identification, dose-response assessment, exposure assessment, risk characterization.
Manuscripts addressing these themes are invited for this Special Issue, especially those can deliver novel data on the quantitative assessment framework and provide a theoretical basis for follow-up research on the mitigation measures and control strategies for stakeholders. Findings in manuscripts should be of significant interest to the diverse readership of IJERPH.
