Chapter 3. Communication and Environmental Health in Critical American Approaches

Abstract : This chapter presents a review of research on environmental health communication conducted by American researchers on their territory. We have tried to reflect the current trend of critical orientation research in American literature dealing with communication on environmental health issues. Attention has been focused on scientific work with a critical orientation that focuses on the social conditions of health in relation to living spaces, the latter being associated with residence and work. This abundant research is characterized by wide dispersion and marginalization within the majority of post-positivist research. However, as a common good, environmental health requires the consideration of all stakeholders. The articles highlight the value of studying it as a political issue within the current debate in the public arena.
