The New Bioethics: Reintegration of Environmental and Biomedical Sciences

Daniel A. Vallero
Duke University, Durham, NC 27708

SINOPSIS

This special section is an expansive discussion of a wide swath of bioethical topics in the two most important public health professions: engineering and medicine. In fact, a number of the articles address what have become known as the "environmental health professions." Engineers have designed systems to clean the air and water, to improve the safety of food, and to protect natural resources. Physicians and medical practitioners have treated and prevented diseases and are increasingly promoting the wellness of individuals and populations. A variety of environmental health scientists are helping to bridge these two disparate fields. Obviously, physicians and medical practitioners are the healers of our time. Unfortunately, few endeavors in the life sciences are without some costs and tradeoffs. This is the province of ethical decision making.
