What People are Saying About This
"This major new publication is modelled on the classic occupational medicine textbook, Hunter's diseases of occupations... Its scope, however, is considerably wider... The target audience is physicians, scientists, and environmental health professionals... However, practitioners and students in public, environmental and occupational health will find it equally valuable."
