About this book

Addresses the problems arising from pollutants that all too commonly contaminate the indoor environment, including biological sources such as bacteria, fungi and moulds, common combustion products, radon and other sources of radiation, solvents used in industry and the home, asbestos and dust pollution.

'With its broad scope this comprehensive guide will appeal to physicians and non-physicians alike and will benefit readers with limited access to journals and review texts.' The Lancet 'It would make an excellent starting point for any serious student or interested lay-person on the current thinking regarding indoor air quality problems. Environmental and public health students as well as environmental health officers would certainly benefit immensely, especially at the paper-back price.' Leonard S. Levy, Indoor Environment
