The book provides a comprehensive view of how environmental exposures may alter the health of our aging population. For readers engaged in environmental research, or aging research, it will highlight a number of questions that need more attention For other readers, they will learn something about the kind of exposures they should avoid or that Price: $   Toxicology is a field of science that helps us understand the harmful effects that chemicals, substances, or situations, can have on people, animals, and the environment.

Some refer to toxicology as the “Science of Safety” because as a field it has evolved from a science focused on studying poisons and adverse effects of chemical exposures, to a science devoted.

Abstract. Research on the environmental toxicology of the visual system has virtually ignored the special concerns of the elderly. In this chapter, the elderly will be portrayed as an at-risk group for the effects of environmental toxicants upon changes in the eye and possible interactions with toxic substances present in the by: 4.

Environmental Epigenetics in Toxicology and Public Health provides in-depth discussions of the suite of complex environmental factors shown to impact epigenetic components within the cell, as well as evidence that these epigenetic modifications are tied to early and later life health effects.

Drug and Alcohol Dependence. Emerging Contaminants. Environmental Pollution. Gerontology is the scientific study of the processes and problems of aging from all aspects—biologic, clinical, psychologic, sociologic, legal, economic, and political.

Geriatrics is the branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis, management, and prevention of medical problems associated with senility and senescence. Grantees at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center used epigenetics to define the link between environmental exposure to smoke, mercury, and lead, and reproductive outcomes, such as preterm birth.

6, 7 Their results are important, since more than one in 10 infants worldwide is born prematurely, increasing their chances of having health problems. The book allows students to concurrently learn concepts in both biomedical and environmental toxicology fields, thus better equipping them for the many career opportunities toxicology provides.

This book will also be useful to those wishing to reference how disciplines interact within the broad field of toxicology. This comprehensive ‘Major Reference Book’ compiles all current and latest information on aging skin in a two-volume set.
