One health is a continuously developing field, that involves the multifaceted environment-animal-human web: nevertheless, the role of toxicological issues has yet to be fully explored in this context, especially as regards experiences that can be transferred to health promotion and training. Food and environment do interact: environment influences the living organisms that produce human food and, in the meanwhile, food production outputs influence the environmental quality. As for foods of animal origin, feed materials and practices are further components of the environment-food interactions. In order to avoid “drowning into complexity”, priorities for risk analysis (assessment/management/ communication) have to be identified. The proposed Frontiers issue intends to tackle the environment-animal-human web in a comprehensive way, from environmental pollution through to feedingstuffs, live animals, safe and sustainable food productions, human risk assessment and finally communication and training. Namely, the paper in the Research Topic are expetected encompass: pollution of ecosystems by pesticides and other contaminants; feed quality as determinant of the safety and nutritional value of human food; biomonitoring of live animals; sustainability aspects of animal productions; pollution-related human health issues from a global perspective; Experiences in communication, dissemination and training. The proposed approach intends to provide multidisciplinary signposts based on local experiences to establish a global one-health framework; moreover, the contributions would identify issues for a safe and sustainable international food market.
