The modern world holds many hazards. Even as some of the hazards of living are reduced by technological advances in medicine and other areas, many nevertheless remain and new hazards are continually introduced. Held by the Collegium Ramazzini, an international academy of scientists who are experts in the fields of occupational and environmental health, the conference that generated this proceedings considered in particular the carcinogenic risks present in the general and occupational environment. Hazardous waste, the risks of nanoparticles, endocrine disrupters, prenatal environmental exposures and developmental outcomes, human exposure to environmental hazards in the World Trade Center aftermath, and the social and economic perspectives on environmental and occupational diseases are discussed.
