#207 / Planetary Health

The Lancet publishes a weekly journal and nine monthly specialty journals in the fields of global health, diabetes and endocrinology, oncology, hematology, neurology, psychiatry, respiratory medicine, infectious diseases and HIV. 

Arguably, The Lancet is the world's leading independent general medical journal. On July 16, 2015, it published a report titled, "Safeguarding human health in the Anthropocene epoch: report of The Rockefeller Foundation–Lancet Commission on planetary health." 

You can download the whole report by clicking here. An "infographic," making the report accessible to those who might be intimidated by the full text, can be read by clicking here.

What's the bottom line?

In short, human health is getting better, but planetary health is getting worse. 

And.... (here's why I especially liked the report) The Lancet concludes that our human fate depends on the Natural World. 

Human health depends on Planetary Health. I couldn't have said it better myself!
