Since the publication of the first edition of Introduction to Toxicology, toxicology has become a more mature science, the number of undergraduate and postgraduate courses has increased and thus the need for a regularly updated introductory text has become more pressing. This third edition caters for this need in a clear and easy-to-read style, featuring: * Up-to-the-minute information* Relevant toxicological examples that reinforce principles* End-of-chapter essay questions* New and redrawn illustrations* Glossary of terms* Extensively revised bibliography The fundamental principles of absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion are described in the introductory chapters, as are the types of exposure and response. In subsequent chapters these are clarified with the use of carefully chosen examples. Among the topics considered are the potential adverse effects of drugs, pesticides, food additives and industrial chemicals.
