Summary

'The people of the Northern River Basins Study Area are fortunate to live in a beautiful environment and to be among the healthiest people. When compared to other parts of the world, the environment they live in has not generally put them at great risks to their health. A substantial proportion of the local people, however, are concerned about the subtle link between the state of their environment and diseases such as, cancer, diabetes, heart problems, diarrhea, asthma, and other health problems in their communities'--Introduction.
