Water Pollution

Water Pollution


Safe and clean drinking water is essential for human life and nowadays water is an important exposure pathway for some environmental risk factors related to cancer and reproductive outcomes.

The most important objective is to investigate the relationship between water contaminants, particularly disinfection by-products, and various adverse health outcomes including cancer, reproductive and respiratory outcomes.

The ISGlobal researchers have an international reputation in this field and are leading important international studies.

The work provides an important evidence base for policy setting, in particular in the field of water disinfection which is one of the pillars of public health.
