Italian Society of Environmental Medicine (SIMA)
Environmental Medicine embraces and involves various disciplines including the biomedical and environmental sciences, the legal, economic, political and societal sciences, as well as the materials and construction sciences. SIMA (Italian Society of Environmental Medicine) aims to safeguard human health through the protection and development of nature and the environment, promoting actions that limit the environmental impact of human activities such as industrial discharges, greenhouse effect, deforestation and pollutant emissions. These are the main environmental risk factors for the human health, due to the close correlation between man and the environment. In this view, the protection of the territory and the environment represents a relevant part of disease prevention, in order to reduce the exposure to chemical, physical and (micro) biological pollutants.
