We just posted a mix of songs on environmental issues to the Social Epi Radio section of our website. The National Institute of Environmental Health (NIEHS) states that environmental factors are fundamental determinants of health and well-being. Researchers and activists have shown that low income communities and communities of color have higher exposures to environmental pollutants and disproportionately host polluting sites such as bus depots, waste transfer sites, chemical facilities and industrial sites. This distribution of pollutants and sites represents a Justice issue because these communities carry a larger share of the environmental burden and health consequences without reaping equal economic benefits associated with the facilities.
