As a new approach to public health, One Health investigates disease “hot spots” where new pathogens are transmitted from animals to humans. Up to this point One Health has focused on the developing world, from where outbreaks of diseases like avian influenza and Nipah virus geographically originate. But should New York and London be considered among the world’s hottest hot spots? Wallace asserts that such centers of capital fund the land grabbing, deforestation, and agricultural intensification that drive disease outbreaks in the first place.
