Health Effects of Toxic Substances--Second Edition
M.J. Malachowski, Ph.D. (1999)
The second edition of Health Effects of Toxic Substances is a significantly expanded exploration of hazardous chemicals and their effects on human health, as well as the principles of hazardous materials toxicology and industrial hygiene. Updated and revised for increased clarity, this inclusive book retains the objective of the first edition--to provide clear and concise explanations of topics and concepts in the field. It achieves this objective through a carefully planned and orderly presentation of concepts, numerous figures and tables, sample problems, and review questions for each chapter. Important terminology is set off in boldface type and carefully explained. An extensive glossary makes for easy recall of terminology.
