Over two billion people live in tropical lands. Most of them live in intimate contact with the immediate geological environment, obtaining their food and water directly from it. The unique geochemistry of these tropical environments have a marked influence on their health, giving rise to diseases that affect millions of people. The origin of these diseases is geologic as exemplified by dental and skeletal fluorosis, iodine deficiency disorders, trace element imbalances to name a few. This book, one of the first of its kind, serves as an excellent introduction to the emerging discipline of Medical Geology.

Der Band wendet sich gemass dem Vorwort an Studierende und Forscher der Fachbereiche Geowissenschaften und Medizin, die an den Interaktionen der menschlichen Geosphare interessiert sind, also an die, die sich damit beschaftigen, wie Bestandteile der menschlichen Geosphare biologische Barrieren uberwinden und in den menschlichen Koerper eindringen. Dieses Werk wird als Grundlage eines jungen und aufstrebenden Wissenszweiges lange aktuell sein." (in: Zentralblatt fur Geologie und Palaontologie Teil II, 2011, Issue 3/4, S. 468 f.)
