Description

The very term "hazardous waste" suggests danger. Yet how much do we know about the nature, treatment and disposal of these substances, and how great a threat do they really pose to our health? This authoritative report from the British Medical Association provides a comprehensive guide to all aspects of hazardous waste. It examines treatment and disposal processes, their implications for the environment, and the evidence linking toxic wastes with ill health. The report concludes with an analysis of plans to reduce risks by implementing waste minimization and recycling projects.show more
