Advances in chemistry and technology offering improvements in the quality of human life become ever more rapid, bringing with them the potential for new toxicity hazards. This has led to legislation requiring toxicity testing and risk assessment for all chemicals and their uses. The new REACH (Risk Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals) Regulation has profound economic consequences because, without official authorization, a chemical cannot be marketed.
This book explains, in depth, the ideas underlying current advances in toxicology and its application in regulating and ensuring the safe use of chemicals.
Combining the two publications in the form of a book was a logical development that permitted the relationships between the concepts to be further developed and clarified using concept diagrams. "This approach is refected in the structure of the book, which develops concepts starting with fundamental principles of toxicology and risk assessment through the molecular, cellular and organismal levels to a culmination in ecotoxicology." -- Chemistry International, Volume 32 No. 1, P25 Chemistry International
