THE SILENT EPIDEMIC

In The Silent Epidemic, physician Alan Lockwood describes and documents the adverse health effects of burning coal. Lockwood's comprehensive treatment examines every aspect of coal, from its complex chemical makeup to details of mining, transporting, burning and disposal (each of which generates significant health concerns). He describes coal pollution's effects on the respiratory, cardiovascular and nervous systems, and how these problems will only worsen; explains the impact of global warming on coal-related health problems; and discusses possible policy approaches to combat coal pollution.
