Description

Important fields interfacing with occupational toxicology - hygiene, epidemiology and occupational medicine - are covered to assist the reader in understanding the necessity of across-discipline considerations in dealing with workplace exposures. The book also informs the reader as to the types of toxicity seen in the workplace environment and the organs likely to be affected. The lung and the skin are given individual attention as these are important sites of injury/disease caused by exposure to chemicals. As the cancer-related effects of chemicals continue to be of concern, genotoxicity and cancer are also singled out for particular attention. The sometimes confused variety of tests for genotoxicity are comprehensively covered.show more
