Abstract

This paper explores characteristics of the “alternative medicine” or ecological paradigm and some of its implications for health po9licies. This paradigm suggests that many degenerative diseases (including cancer) are "caused" or accellerated by the building of industrial toxins and that effective public policies should encourage wholistic preventative changes, including in food and water systems, rather than primarily addressing symptoms.

Keywords: disease, health, industrialization, pollution, ecology, alternative medicine, ecological pressure, health policy
