In the last several decades, international traffic volume has significantly increased, raising the risk for acquisition of infectious diseases and their spread. In this important volume, the impact of health issues is explored in connection with travel. Not only does the book explores the risk of diseases such as H1N1 (otherwise known as swine flu), malaria, salmonella, and Legionellosis, it also addresses health regulations for travel to foreign countries, alcohol use and hospitality-related health problems, medical tourism (patients seeking less expensive medical procedures in countries other than their own), and much more.
