However, to examine whether there is a link requires research of its breadth and underlying mechanisms from an interdisciplinary approach. This article begins by reviewing the debates concerning the human—nature relationship, which are then critiqued and redefined from an interdisciplinary perspective. It is argued that using an interdisciplinary perspective can facilitate a deeper understanding of the complexities involved for attaining optimal health at the human—environmental interface.
In various ways, environmentalism claims that living things other than humans, and the natural environment as a whole, are deserving of consideration in reasoning about the morality of political, economic, and social policies. For discussion of environmental statutes and regulations, including international conventions, see also environmental law. It is often characterized by a mechanistic approach to nonhuman nature in which individual creatures and species have only an instrumental value for humans. The defining feature of anthropocentrism is that it considers the moral obligations humans have to the environment to derive from obligations that humans have to each other—and, less crucially, to future generations of humans—rather than from any obligation to other living things or to the environment as a whole. Human obligations to the environment are thus indirect.
However, to examine whether there is a link requires research of its breadth and underlying mechanisms from an interdisciplinary approach. This article begins by reviewing the debates concerning the human—nature relationship, which are then critiqued and redefined from an interdisciplinary perspective. It is argued that using an interdisciplinary perspective can facilitate a deeper understanding of the complexities involved for attaining optimal health at the human—environmental interface. During the last century, research has been increasingly drawn toward understanding the human—nature relationship 1 , 2 and has revealed the many ways humans are linked with the natural environment 3. Such connection has underpinned a host of theoretical and empirical research in fields, which until now have largely remained as separate entities. Since the late nineteenth century a number of descriptive models have attempted to encapsulate the dimensions of human and ecosystem health as well as their interrelationships. Each, however, have not fully incorporated all relevant dimensions, balancing between the biological, social, and spatial perspectives 17 ,
The Interaction of Food Industry and Environment addresses all levels of interaction, paying particular attention to avenues for responsible operational excellence in food production and processing. Written at a scientific level, this book explores many topics relating to the food industry and environment, including environmental management systems, environmental performance evaluation, the correlation between food industry, sustainable diets and environment, environmental regulation on the profitability of sustainable water use in the food industry, lifecycle assessment, green supply chain network design and sustainability, the valorization of food processing waste via biorefineries, food-energy-environment trilemma, wastewater treatment, and much more. Readers will also find valuable information on energy production from food processing waste, packaging and food sustainability, the concept of virtual water in the food industry, water reconditioning and reuse in the food industry, and control of odors in the food industry. This book is a welcomed resource for food scientists and technologists, environmentalists, food and environmental engineers and academics. Food scientists, technologists, engineers and chemists working in food science; environmentalists, environmental technologists and environmental engineers; policy makers; researchers, academics and professionals working in the food industry; food processors and product development scientists; interdisciplinary scholars, engineers, managers, and policy makers from different disciplines who work on food and sustainability. Environmental management systems in the food industry 2.

Human impact on the environment or anthropogenic impact on the environment includes changes to biophysical environments  and ecosystems , biodiversity , and natural resources   caused directly or indirectly by humans, including global warming ,   environmental degradation  such as ocean acidification   , mass extinction and biodiversity loss ,     ecological crisis , and ecological collapse. Modifying the environment to fit the needs of society is causing severe effects, which become worse as the problem of human overpopulation continues. Some of the problems, including global warming and biodiversity loss pose an existential risk to the human race,   and human overpopulation is strongly correlated with those problems. The term anthropogenic designates an effect or object resulting from human activity. The term was first used in the technical sense by Russian geologist Alexey Pavlov , and it was first used in English by British ecologist Arthur Tansley in reference to human influences on climax plant communities. Overconsumption is a situation where resource use has outpaced the sustainable capacity of the ecosystem. It can be measured by the ecological footprint , a resource accounting approach which compares human demand on ecosystems with the amount of planet matter ecosystems can renew.
with environmental problems, to include treatment of the relationship between man and environment, or to employ a systems approach as a means of gaining.
Check out our interactive infographic to see progress toward the Environmental Health objectives and other Healthy People topic areas. Humans interact with the environment constantly. These interactions affect quality of life, years of healthy life lived, and health disparities. The Healthy People Environmental Health objectives focus on 6 themes, each of which highlights an element of environmental health:.
