Toxicology of Halogenated Hydrocarbons: Health and Ecological Effects covers the papers of a symposium held at the 2nd Chemical Congress of the North American Continent and the 180th national meeting of the American Chemical Society in fall of 1980 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The book contains papers on human exposure and health effects; hepatotoxicity and carcinogenicity; and cytotoxicity, teratogenicity, mutagenicity, and neurotoxicity. The text also presents papers on the metabolism and toxicodynamics of halogenated hydrocarbons, as well as the embryotoxicity and environmental fate related to halogenated hydrocarbons in animals and humans.
