Toxicology for NonToxicologists provides nonscientific readers with basic toxicological concepts and explains how those concepts and their applications affect everyday life. It is designed for professionals in the environmental field as well as for a more general audience. Completely updated, this edition includes new overviews of key emerging issues, including nanotechnology, endocrine disruptors, and vapor intrusion of chemicals in indoor air. It... more...

Written over a period of 17 years, the Handbook of Chemical Risk Assessment exhaustively examines and analyzes the world literature on chemicals entering the environment from human activities. The three volumes cover chemicals recommended by environmental specialists of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other resource managers. The choices were based on the real or potential impact of each contaminant and on the knowledge available about their... more...

Animal experimentation has long been a controversial issue with impassioned arguments on both sides of the debate. Increasingly it has become more expedient and feasible to develop new methods that avoid the use of animals. There is agreement on both sides that reduction and refinement of experiments on animals should be an important goal for the industries involved. Alternatives to Animal Testing, written by leading experts in the... more...

New data continually indicate that antioxidants may contribute to reductions in cancer risks and that chronic consumption of low levels of chemical carcinogens in our diet may contribute to an increased risk of developing specific types of cancers. Research also shows that in America today, the leading causes of death are cancer and heart disease. Considering that diet plays a significant role in the development of both of these diseases, issues of... more...

The presence of chemicals in our environment is a subject of intense interest owing to the many potential adverse health effects to humans following exposure to these chemicals. The principles and practices of risk assessment are used to assess the associated health risks to provide a scientific and health basis for guidance or regulatory standards development and risk management decision making for public health protection. This... more...


By presenting background information on the selection and application of biochemical tests in safety assessment studies, this text seeks to provide a basis for improving the knowledge required to interpret data from toxicological studies. In addition to chapters which discuss the assessment of specific organ toxicity (such as the liver, kidney and thyroid), the book also covers pre-analytical variables, regulatory requirements and statistical... more...

Today, we are exposed to an increasing number of chemicals in the environment and there is a growing awareness of the effects of these chemicals on the ovaries. Infertility resulting from environmental exposures may not be obvious until the reproductive life span is waning. As such, the potential for xenobiotic-induced infertility needs to be better understood. In recent years, research into chemicals that have the potential to cause... more...

Nationally, toxicology programs have evolved from a traditional exploration of the chemistry and applied toxicity of chemicals and drugs to a more comprehensive study of toxicology and toxicology testing as independent entities. Consequently, the second edition of Principles of Toxicology Testing starts with basic toxicological principles, including absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination of toxins, including chemicals... more...

Toxicology is the study of the adverse effects of chemical,physical, or biological agents on people, animals, and theenvironment. Toxicologists are trained to investigate, interpret,and communicate the nature of those effects.  Over the last ten years the subject of toxicology has changeddramatically, moving from a discipline which was once firmly weddedto traditional methods to one which is keen to embrace theinnovative... more...

This proceedings of the International Symposium on Materials Issues in a Hydrogen Economy addresses fundamental materials science issues and challenges concerning the production, storage, and use of hydrogen. The volume also deals with safety and education issues. The contributors — researchers in physics, chemistry, materials science, and engineering — share their ideas and results to delineate outstanding materials problems in a hydrogen economy... more...
