Overview

New Edition Available 8/1/2013

The principles and practice of toxicology have contributed to protecting not only the individual at work or at home, but populations, communities, and our delicate terrestrial and aquatic environments as well. Principles and Practice of Toxicology in Public Health is the ideal text for a first course in toxicology for the public health student. In five sections, it offers an introduction to the field, as well as the basics of toxicology principles, chemical toxicity, ecotoxicology, and toxicology practice. The text is immediately readable for the student with little technical background.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Kari Ann Christensen, MPH (Oregon State University)
Description: The author integrates fundamental toxicological concepts with practice-based regulatory and risk assessment processes in this book for undergraduate and graduate level public health students and professional public health practitioners.
Purpose: The purpose is to expose public health students to the study of toxicology and significant environmental factors that impact human health. The book is also intended as a reference for public health professionals who lack toxicology knowledge. The book is necessary to educate public health professionals about how environmental factors affect human health.
Audience: Public health students and professionals working in municipal settings with little background in toxicology are the intended readers.
Features: The book begins with a brief history of the field of toxicology and basic toxicological principles and expands to explore dose-response, absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion, and ends with chapters discussing toxicology risk assessment and regulatory issues.
Assessment: This is a useful book for the intended audience. The next edition could provide further information on the environmental fate of chemicals, including breakdown pathways, and an ecological perspective of how exposures to humans occur in order to emphasize ways to intervene and protect health.
