Abstract

It has been agreed that human health has been increasingly harmed by pollution on air, water, and soil, which comes mainly from chemical substances originated from natural and anthropogenic (contribution made by human) sources. Currently around 144,000 chemical substances available thousands of those chemicals have inadequate data to predict their exposure and toxicity. To address the issues of environmental contamination, since years ago the scientists have been developing many theories and techniques to deal with. Bioremediation, hytoremediation, mycoremediation, oxidation, demobilization, to name some of their works. However, some gaps are still exist in relation with the studies about human health exposures from some numbers of chemical substances. In particularly, understand the baseline condition of human health, and it relations to environmental condition is not less important to prevent the global human or public health issues toward better the living quality, with consideration to the ‗human uniqueness‘. This gap should be filled by public health scientists to balance the progress of research on chemicals contamination effects on the water, air, and soil environment.
