Noted for its concise yet broad coverage of the subject, this new edition includes new chapters on over-the counter preparations, lactation and occupational toxicology. In addition, it covers:
" The action of chemicals that cause cancer, mutations, congenital malformations and organ or system specific effects
" Why chemical target specific organs and systems and how these effects are revealed by laboratory tests
" The host and environmental factors that modify these effects
" The effects of food additives, pesticides, metals, pollutants in air, water and soil, as well as toxicants encountered in workplaces

The inclusion of separate subject and chemical indexes also makes it a useful shelf reference for more experienced researchers.
