AMA/APHA: Climate Change a Major Public Health Issue March 1, 2011 : 4:36 PM

The American Medical Association (AMA) and the American Public Health Association agree that global warming is hazardous to our health:

“Medical and public health groups are banding together to explain how global warming has taken a toll on human health and will continue to cause food-borne illnesses, respiratory problems, and deaths unless policy changes are enacted.”

“In a Thursday conference call with reporters, the heads of the American Medical Association (AMA) and the American Public Health Association (APHA) joined with a pediatrician and a scientist to lay out what they say is a major public health issue: climate change caused by global warming.”
