Metal Toxicology addresses the effects of metals on human health, as well as their mechanisms of toxicity. Unlike most books on metal toxicity which are organized by individual metals, this book is arranged inan organ-by-organ basis. It deals with unifying mechanisms of metal toxicity within a given tissue, and with exposure of a tissue to more than one metal at a time.
Unique aspect of organ-specific orientation Written by leading authorities in metal toxicology Chapters of special interest include Risk Assessment, Emerging Technologies, and Molecular Biological Techniques Serves as an excellent sourcebook of generalized information on metal toxicology, allowing for specific tissue-system referencing
