Explores the latest science on dioxins and other POPs, and their impact on human healthNow in its third edition, Dioxins and Health is the most respected reference of its kind, presenting the latest scientific findings on dioxins, dibenzofurans, polychlorinated biphenyls and related compounds, and their impact on human health. The book fully examines the many toxicological effects--including immunological, neurological, developmental, dermatological, and cardiological--these chemicals have on health. This Third Edition has been greatly expanded with the latest research findings on dioxins and rel.
