Modern Toxicology and developments
This book "Modern Toxicology and its Developments" provides an overview of toxicology, including the description of the essential theories, technologies and tools. Different examples of toxicology applications in human health are thoroughly discussed in this text. Toxicology is a scientific subject that overlaps with biology, chemistry, pharmacology, and medicine and entails the study of the harmful effects of chemical compounds on living organisms as well as the practice of detecting and treating toxins and toxicants exposures. Toxicology actively assists cancer research since some toxins may be used as medications to destroy tumor cells. Ribosome-inactivating proteins, which have been studied in leukemia treatment, are a classic example of this.This textbook presents new students and researchers with an easy-to-understand, complete overview and understanding of toxicological ideas, recommendations, and, in particular, complex instrumentation methods. This offers an authoritative perspective on the science and its future. The knoledge of toxicity and mechanisms of toxicity play an important role in different industries including pharmaceuiticals, food industry, agriculture, chemical industry. This handbook also illustrates the health impacts of metals, petroleum products, paper and pulp industry waste, air pollutants, and animal poisons. This book is equally beneficial for students, teachers and researchers in the field of toxicology. Moreover, this book is also a good resource for environmentalists and policy makers.
