Environment

The environment plays a key role in public health. Environmental exposures such as lead, radon, air pollution, and water quality can impact our health. More information on environmental exposures and health effects is found on New Jersey's Environmental Public Health Tracking portal, http://www.state.nj.us/health/epht/.
Many adverse health outcomes have links to the environment, such as air pollution and an increased risk of heart attacks. Having reliable data about these health concerns provides a clearer picture of how the environment impacts health. This information can then be used to target interventions to prevent and control these adverse health outcomes.
