Planetary Health w/ Sam Myers & Living on Earth
Join the nationally-syndicated radio show & podcast Living on Earth and Sam Myers of the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health for the latest Good Reads on Earth virtual event.
We speak to Sam about his new book, "Planetary Health: Protecting Nature to Protect Ourselves."

**

Human health depends on the health of the planet. Earth’s natural systems—the air, the water, the biodiversity, the climate—are our life support systems. Yet climate change, biodiversity loss, scarcity of land and freshwater, pollution and other threats are degrading these systems. The emerging field of planetary health aims to understand how these changes threaten our health and how to protect ourselves and the rest of the biosphere.

Planetary Health: Protecting Nature to Protect Ourselves provides a readable introduction to this new paradigm. With an interdisciplinary approach, the book addresses a wide range of health impacts felt in the Anthropocene, including food and nutrition, infectious disease, non-communicable disease, dislocation and conflict, and mental health. It also presents strategies to combat environmental changes and its ill-effects, such as controlling toxic exposures, investing in clean energy, improving urban design, and more.
