This book addresses two fundamental issues in the assessment of cancer risk due to exposure to hard-to-define mixtures of different carcinogens: how to gather reliable scientific data and how to make predictive use of this information. The volume offers 46 contributions that review our knowledge of the effects of various classes of mixed substances. The authors discuss the methods used both in the laboratory and in epidemiological studies, and present the results of significant new research, with recommendations for future approaches. This work represents a valuable source of current knowledge for toxicologists, epidemiologists, environmental scientists, and occupational hygienists.
