Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is an excellent and well-produced guide to the subject. In the Introduction the book is described as a source of state-of-the-art knowledge for public health authorities, physicians, and industrial managers which can also be used in graduate and post-graduate training and by research workers including toxicologists, clinicians, and epidemiologists...I will certainly be dipping into it from time to time."
