Clay’s Handbook of Environmental Health, since its first publication in 1933, has provided a definitive guide for the environmental health practitioner, or reference for the consultant or student. This 21th edition continues as a first point of reference, reviewing the core principles, techniques and competencies, and then outlining the specialist subjects. It has been refocused on the current curriculum of the UK’s Chartered Institute of Environmental Health but should also readily suit the generalist or specialist working outside the UK.

"THE POTTER'S HOUSE: Which Type of Clay Are YOU?" will help you get to know God as your Potter and you as His clay. There is a special intimacy that takes place between the Potter and the vessel He desires to make. He has designed you with purpose and just as clay has to be shaped, molded, spun and placed in the fire, the Potter has to do the same thing with all His children. Some clays are easier to mold than others, but once the Potter is done, every piece of clay that was once shapeless will have a PURPOSE as determined by Him. Sometimes, we get sidetracked and broken, but the Potter aims to fix our broken pieces and RESTORE us back to the vessels we were meant to be at the Potter's House. YOU are special to the Potter and in His eyes, you are absolutely priceless.

"How Clays Work - Science & Applications of Clays & Clay-like Minerals in Health & Beauty" is part of the "Mineral Healing" book series. The first book in the series is "Earth's Humble Healers." In the second book I write in more detail about why clays and clay-like minerals - muds, diatomite, zeolite, work the way the do. I have been researching uses and applications of clays in natural health and beauty for a number of years. Having read quite a few great books about clays for a clay user like you and me, I have not yet come across a non-scientific book which would talk about properties of clays and explain the science behind them. Most of the books I have read are either purely scientific, or consumer oriented, but with very little information of how and why clays work the the way they do. So I decided to write a book for those like myself, who like to dig deep into the subject. Why is it that some clays have such potent detoxifying properties? How does it happen? I was not happy with the explanations I saw. I wanted to learn it in more detail, to prove to myself that the assertion that clays can "ingest" toxins - both organic (e.g.pesticides) and inorganic (heavy and radioactive metals) and take them out of the body environment has a scientific foundation under it. I did my research, and this book is a result of it. I apologise in advance if some (only some) of the information in the book may come across as a bit too "scientific." "How Clays Work" is for those of you who would like to learn more about this wonderful mineral. Apart from cation (ion) exchange, it covers other phenomena - such as absorption, adsorption and intercalation as the properties playing an important part in detoxification processes. There is also a lot of detailed information about muds (which some people confuse with clays), and chapters about zeolite and diatomaceous earth. The section about mud is comprehensive covering types of mud, their origin, composition and how they work with the body. And for those of you who would like to learn about toxins - there is a section in the book about toxins - biological, environmental and metabolic. And of course, heavy metals. The book describes what they are, how they get into the body and how they affect us. It is quite detailed, if you are interested in learning about the subject from one source. You will also find quite a bit of information about various types of clays, their properties, and how they can be applied in health and beauty. This book is aimed at natural health and beauty practitioners working with clays, product developers, health shop owners. Wouldn't it be good to learn why clays work the way they do and explain it to your customers? But more than anything, this book is written for every one of you who is interested in learning about clays and why they play such an important role in detoxification and health maintenance. I hope that you enjoy reading the book. Please do leave feedback after you've read it. And of course - get in touch with me if you have any questions. All the best!
They attract remove toxins, including heavy metals. In this book, I explain how it works and what makes clays so powerful. I have spent a lot of time researching the subject and putting it all in one place. The book reflects this.

Let me ask you a question. When you hear the word "clay", what is the first thing which comes to mind? Clay pots? And when you hear the word "mud", do you imagine the squishy stuff you see under your feet when it rains? You probably don't, but this is what I used to think about first before I started my research. Not that I was unaware of clay and mud being used in beauty and healing. It's just that these words didn't mean much to me. Well, not until I saw some grey powder at my mother's home. I asked her what cement was doing on her window sill. She laughed and said that it was very special "cement" called blue Cambrian clay, and that many people were using it not only for its wonderful action on the skin, but also for healing, with many positive outcomes. My mum's comment got me curious, so I started researching clay and its properties. I found out that people had been using clay for thousands of years. They used it to disinfect wounds, stop the infection spreading, prevent diarrhoea and food poisoning. Clay was used to stop aches and pains, as a source of valuable minerals, and for many other purposes. During both WWI and WWII clays were included into soldiers' rations to help keep drinking water free from deadly germs, stop diarrhoea and food poisoning, as well as prevent wounds from being infected. Many soldiers' limbs were saved by clay.While I was researching clay, I stumbled upon information about mud. I found out that mud was being used successfully by medical spas all over the world to treat a whole variety of medical problems, such as arthritis, eczema, psoriasis, infertility, to deal with weight issues, disorders of the nervous system and much more. We all know Dead Sea mud. There are many other types of mud - salt water and fresh water ones - all having their own healing properties. As I was researching healing properties of muds, I realised that salts were part of the healing minerals range, and started researching their properties. The salts which stood out for me were magnesium chloride and magnesium sulphate (widely known as Epsom salt). I found out that using them in a bath, spray or wrap ensured the quickest way to supplement the body with magnesium - the 4th most abundant mineral in the body which takes part in over 300 body processes. Then I found out about healing properties of other salts, detoxifying properties of zeolite, and anti-parasite properties of diatomite. I am still learning. This book is a modest attempt to share some of what I have learned, so that you rediscover for yourself what your body has known ever since the day you were born - that it is a living ocean which has all the minerals we need. All of them are found in muds, salts and clays. There is a theory that life on Earth has started from mud. Surely what has created life has the ability to heal. You decide for yourself.
In this book, I write about a wider range of minerals including salts. This book is written to give a better understanding of how minerals work and how they have helped millions of people over the centuries.

A Nendo Tamashii (from the Japanese nendo, clay, and tamashii, soul) is a hand-molded sphere of clay specially created with the intention of raising the Life Energy – the innate Healing Power – of the person holding it. In its center, a clear quartz crystal is embedded as its Soul: the Soul in the clay. The ultimate function of the nendo is to help the person find his own Soul – his own Tamashii – thereby easing his deepest suffering. Neither sculpture nor pottery, the nendo is surely one of Dr. Diamond’s most original contributions to using the arts for healing. This exquisite collection is a series of writings inspired by the nendo concept. With the unique combination of depth, insight, and spirituality that characterizes his work, Dr. Diamond explores the themes that surround the nendo through a series of short papers and poems. The result is an inspirational collection, which, like the nendo itself, is intended to raise the Life Energy of the reader. Essential, profoundly rewarding reading for anyone interested in holistic healing, meditation, or a higher philosophy of life. “Dr. Diamond always shows us what true Healing is and how we can help others and ourselves. I am sure this book will be one of our guides to Healing.” – Dr. Shigeto Toyama, D.C. – chiropractor, Tokyo

After declining by 24.2% from 2009 to 2016, annual average fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in the United States in counties with monitors increased by 5.5% between 2016 and 2018. Increases occurred in multiple census regions and in counties that were in and out of attainment with National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). We explore channels through which the increase may have occurred including increases in economic activity, increases in wildfires, and decreases in Clean Air Act enforcement actions. The health implications of this increase in PM2.5 between 2016 and 2018 are significant. The increase was associated with 9,700 additional premature deaths in 2018. At conventional valuations, these deaths represent damages of $89 billion.

Trace Elements in Health: A Review of Current Issues presents how some metals affect health, growth, and well-being of man and animals in a variety of ways, when the amounts involved are excessive or deficient. This book discusses the various aspects of trace elements in three points of view. First, the toxicological and beneficial properties are described in eleven chapters. Chapter 1 deals with general toxicological properties, while Chapters 2 to 11 reviews advances in the field of elements that include cadmium, copper, indium, thallium, lead, mercury, molybdenum, selenium, zinc, and transuranic series. The next chapters focus on the genetic effects, health of children, and birth rate problems related to trace elements. Finally, this text concludes with a discussion on the role of trace elements in agriculture, focusing on requirements of plants and animals, consequences of excesses and imbalances of trace elements in soils, and animal diets. This publication is valuable to veterinarians and practitioners of disciplines such as physiology, dietetics, and medicine.

Despite the connections between soils and human health, there has not been a great amount of attention focused on this area when compared to many other fields of scientific and medical study. Soils and Human Health brings together authors from diverse fields with an interest in soils and human health, including soil science, geology, geography, biology, and anthropology to investigate this issue from a number of perspectives. The book includes a soil science primer chapter for readers from other fields, and discusses the ways the soil science community can contribute to improving our understanding of soils and human health. Features Discusses ways the soil science community can contribute to the improvement of soil health Approaches human health from a soils-focused perspective, covering the influence of soil conservation and contact with soil on human health Illustrates topics via case studies including arsenic in groundwater in Bangladesh; the use of Agent Orange in Vietnam; heavy metal contamination in Shipham, United Kingdom and Omaha, Nebraska, USA; and electronic waste recycling in China. In a scientific world where the trend has often been ever-increasing specialization and increasingly difficult communication between fields and subfields, the interdisciplinary nature of soils and human health studies presents a significant challenge going forward. Fields with an interest in soils and human health need to have increased cross-disciplinary communication and cooperation. This book is a step in the direction of accessibility and innovation, elucidating the state of knowledge in the meeting of soil and health sciences, and identifying places where more work is needed.
