This new volume examines the relationship between pesticides and carcinogenicity, presenting some of the current thinking behind the decisions that are made with respect to their use. Progressing from theoretical to practical considerations, this book addresses: mechanisms of carcinogenesis; dietary inhibition of carcinogenesis; biological issues of extrapolation, and pesticide regulatory issues. Of special interest is a chapter by Bruce Ames, originator of the Ames Test for carcinogenicity, on ranking of possible carcinogenic hazards.
