Description

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.
