A Biologic Approach to Environmental Assessment and Epidemiology

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, Jun 24, 2010 - Medical - 448 pages
In this book, Thomas J. Smith and David Kriebel assert that important advances in the quantification of environmental risks can only come through a true synthesis of the fields of environmental epidemiology and exposure assessment. They have built a common biologic model of exposure, physiologic response, and disease, a synthesis of the various existing models which serves to both simplify and improve the application of environmental epidemiology and exposure assessment to current and future environmental chemical risks.
