Throughout history, arsenic has been used as an effective and lethal poison. Today, arsenic continues to present a real threat to human health all over the world, as it contaminates groundwater and food supplies.Handbook of Arsenic Toxicologypresents the latest findings on arsenic, its chemistry, its sources and its acute and chronic effects on the environment and human health. The book takes readings systematically through the target organs, before detailing current preventative and counter measures. This reference enables readers to effectively assess the risks related to arsenic, and provide a comprehensive look at arsenic exposure, toxicity and toxicity prevention.

  • Brings together current findings on the effects of arsenic on the environment and human health
  • Includes state-of-the-art techniques in arsenic toxicokinetics, speciation and molecular mechanisms
  • Provides all the information needed for effective risk assessment, prevention and countermeasure
Dr. Swaran J.S. Flora, Associate Director & Head of Pharmacology and Regulatory Toxicology Department at Defence Research and Development Establishment, Gwalior, India, is engaged in research related to studying the mechanism and mode of action of heavy metals with particular interest in the development of a new molecule engineered for...
