Agriculture and Public Health

Agriculture and health are intimately connected according to ‘Agriculture and public health: impacts and pathways for better coherence‘ by the European Public Health Alliance.

However, health is usually a ‘missing link’ in the agricultural debate, partly because the multifaceted interactions between health and agriculture are rarely fully recognised. This discussion paper summarizes the wide-ranging impacts of agriculture on public health and proposes steps towards a constructive agriculture and health agenda.
