about

This book covers the entire spectrum of health effects induced by chronic arsenic poisoning, which is prevalent in more than 30 countries due to the use of unclean underground water, a result of surface water pollution and shortage. This environmental health disaster has been considered more catastrophic than the Chernobyl nuclear plant explosion in the former Soviet Union and the Bhopal chemical plant explosion in India. All contributors to this review volume have done extensive research on arsenic poisoning and published excellent papers in internationally well-known journals. Health Hazards of Environmental Arsenic Poisoning includes reviews of the state-of-the-art literature and cutting-edge scientific evidence on arsenic-related health effects. It is also an important source of valuable information for health care workers, environmental scientists and epidemiologists, as well as public health practitioners.
