Modern research shows us that disease and health of animals and people are intrinsically connected. The condition of the environment we share with animals is now understood to be a primary factor in establishing the health of both humans and animals. This concept is the basis of the One Health movement, which strives to expand interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans and animals worldwide.
Animals, Diseases, and Human Health: Shaping Our Lives Now and in the Future is written by leading experts in their fields and is centered around topics that are most relevant to the overlap and connection of animal and human health. Topics covered include human health concerns derived from animals such as allergies and dog bites, global concerns of emerging diseases and pandemics, wildlife smuggling, animal abuse, and common diseases that can stem from popular household pets. Social issues—such as the connection between animal abuse and human violence—are also examined.
