Modern Poisons by Alan Kolok
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This accessible book explains basic principles in plain language while illuminating the most important issues in contemporary toxicology. Kolok begins by exploring age-old precepts such as the dose-response relationship and goes on to show exactly how chemicals enter the body and elicit their toxic effect. Kolok then traces toxicology's development, from studies of endocrine-disrupting chemicals in toiletries to the emerging science on prions and epigenetics.
