Abstract

The levels of health care and living conditions in many regions of the world have improved considerably in the past decades, especially in urban areas. Yet, modern urbanized and industrialized ecosystems are not necessarily the healthiest places to live in. In addition to many “traditional” health hazards, such as air pollution, and general stress associated with living in urban areas, yet, many new health hazards constantly emerge or are being recognized as such.
