Health & Environment. There are many linkages between health and the environment. Toxic exposure, air and water pollution, car dependent lifestyles, meat-heavy-vegetable-light diets, and many more. See Roberta Bondar, Terry Tamminen, Denis Hayes, Richard MacLean, David Steinman, Michael Castleman, Annie Bond, Francesca Lyman, Ted Smith, Arlene Blum, Wil Burns, and Katie Alvord.

Environmental Health & Safety. Exposure to toxic and hazardous materials in the workplace is an important environmental health concern. Addressing this issue more effectively is beneficial not only for workers but also for the businesses that pay health and workers' compensation claims. See Jack Giampalmi and Richard MacLean.

Hazardous & Toxic Waste. Industry, agriculture, transportation, construction, and many commercial and residential activities together produce millions of tons of hazardous and toxic by-products, and our poorly designed processes treat these as wastes and often release them to the environment. Many harmful, unhealthy, unsafe, and costly effects ensue. Turning the wastes from one process into the resources for another is nature’s way, and we humans need to learn to do likewise. See Ted Smith, Jeffrey Burke, Wil Burns, Denis Hayes, and Joel Robertson.
