If someone dropped you on the moon without an astronaut's equipment, what would happen? You'd die, of course. The human body depends on its environment. This engaging four-volume set examines our bodies' inseparable relationship with the environment. Each volume presents the parts of a particular body system and how they work, things that go wrong and how they're treated, how the environment affects the particular body system and impacts our health, controversial environmental issues (where applicable), and changes individuals and groups are making to fix environmental problems and restore health.

Book News Annotation:

The four volumes of this set, which is suitable for students in junior high and high school, feature two systems per volume; reproductive and nervous, muscular and skeletal, digestive and urinary, and circulatory and respiratory. Each volume repeats the same introduction on the environment and the human body and method for using the book. The chapters detail the functions of each system and some of the diseases that affect them, with their environmental causes when relevant. The volumes are illustrated with b&w plates, clear anatomical drawings, inset boxes on issues and topics, and diagrams. A glossary, bibliography, and index are included in each volume.
