Health impact of different energy sources: a challenge for the end of the century: report on a WHO meeting Monte Carlo, 19 -22 July 1983
AbstractA broad discussion of occupational and public health risks associated with current patterns in the production and consumption of energy in Europe. Conditions likely to determine future sources and uses of energy are also considered in an effort to show how present knowledge about energy-related health risks can be applied in planning for the future. Current and future trends are examined in separate sections devoted to the use of fossil fuels, nuclear energy, and alternative energy sources, including hydropower, wind power, solar power, and biomass energy. The book concludes with a model matrix indicating effects on health for each step in the fuel cycles of six energy sources. A bibliography listing well over 200 related reports and other publications is also included.
