Language: English . Brand New Book. Despite Canada s enduring image as a natural paradise, every year thousands of Canadians become ill or die prematurely as a result of exposure to environmental hazards. Canadians understand that their health is inextricably linked to the health of the environment and are deeply concerned about the impacts of toxic substances on themselves and their children. In Cleaner, Greener, Healthier, David R. Boyd sets out to expose and remedy Canada s environmental health problems. He begins by assessing the environmental burden of disease, identifies its unequal distribution along racial and socio-economic lines, and estimates the associated economic costs. He then compares Canadian environmental laws and policies with those in the United States, Australia, and the European Union, leading to a provocative diagnosis of the root causes of Canada s second-rate standards. Finally, drawing on strategies that protect citizens in other countries, Boyd prescribes legal remedies that will enable Canada to catch up with the world s environmental leaders while delivering substantial health and economic benefits. This book demonstrates how strengthening environmental policies governing air and water pollution, hazardous substances, pesticides, climate change, and biodiversity will extend lives, prevent illnesses, and save Canada billions of dollars in unnecessary health care spending.
