Essays in Toxicology, Volume 5 covers essays in toxicology. The book presents essays on nitrosamines; a laboratory model ecosystem to evaluate compounds producing biological magnification; and the metabolism of DDT in human. The text also includes essays on the toxins of Clostridium botulinum; the use of breath analysis in clinical toxicology; and the biochemical toxicology of methanol. Toxicologists, biochemists, microbiologists, pharmacologists, and people involved in the research of toxicology will find the book invaluable.
