Environmental Heath is a subset of public health. Both are extremely broad but public health also includes things like metal health, drug addiction, medication management, healthcare etcetera. Preventive Medicine is another branch of public health that has significant overlap with Environmental Health.
Environmental Health looks primarily at how the environment affects people and how we can minimize illness and injury. EH practitioners consider it to be the most successful and least recognized career field. Although lifesaving medicines and techniques get big press, most of the additional high quality life years over the past century are from Environmental Health.
While both have links but there is still a difference. Environmental health deals with issues like air quality or soot that is created by burning of different kind of waste or soot due to unclean fuel use and etc. Issues like pollution of aquifers, untreated sewage dumped in the sea or industrial pollution come within environmental health. Public health deals with health of patients and communities. Issues like well being of mother before and after delivery and that of the baby, infections transmitted as a result of unsafe practices like hepatitis B or C, unsafe sexual indulgence leading to sexually transmitted infections and HIV. A current public health concern globally is how to deal with ageing as peoples lifespans are increasing.

I was a Public Health major with an emphasis on environmental and occupational health. Public Health is all about making the masses healthier. This deals with access to healthcare, vaccinations, fluride in water and the effectiveness of different programs towards target groups. In environmental health you can think of it as how does the environment impact the health of the masses. An example would be how does air pollution impact the health of a community, are certain air pollutants more harmful to health what are the threshold of these contaminants and so forth.

If you want ten bux from the Vegan crowd you DON’T cry about dying kids in Sectio8 housing, you show the terrors of “Dolphins” in plastic six-pack rings. So is your teacher a Vegan or a Welfare Beneficiary?
