Summary note:
"The Third Edition of Environmental Toxicants: Human Exposures and Their Health Effects has been thoroughly updated and revised with the latest findings on the effects of human exposure in nonoccupational settings to chemical agents and physical factors. It offers readers the most current information on performing and analyzing the results of risk assessments for exposed individuals and populations. In addition to examining individual toxicants, the book explores broader social and scientific issues such as individual and community risk, environmental engineering for risk reduction, pulmonary medicine, and lessons learned from the industrial sector." "Supplemented with more than 100 illustrations and photographs, this Third Edition is a guide for public health officials, industrial hygienists, epidemiologists, and physicians involved in risk assessment and health management for exposed individuals and populations."--BOOK JACKET.
