Handbook on the Toxicology of Metals free pdf Handbook on the Toxicology of Metals, Fourth Edition bridges the gap between established knowledgebase and new advances in metal toxicology to provide one essential reference for all those involved in the field. This book provides comprehensive coverage of basic toxicological data, emphasizing toxic effects primarily in humans, but also those of animals and biological systems in vitro. The fourth edition also contains several new chapters on important topics such as nanotoxicology, metals in prosthetics and dental implants, gene-environment interaction, neurotoxicology, metals in food, renal, cardiovascular, and diabetes effects of metal exposures and more. Volume I covers "General Considerations and Volume II is devoted to "Specific Metals. A multidisciplinary resource with contributions from internationally-recognized experts, the fourth edition of the Handbook on the Toxicology of Metals is a prominent and indispensable reference for toxicologists, physicians, pharmacologists, engineers, and all those involved in the toxicity of metals. * Contains 61 peer reviewed chapters dealing with the effects of metallic elements and their compounds on biological systems* Includes information on sources, transport and transformation of metals in the environment and on certain aspects of the ecological effects of metals to provide a basis for better understanding of the potential for adverse effects on human health* Covers the toxicology of metallic nanomaterials in a new comprehensive chapter* Metal toxicology in developing countries is dealt with in another new chapter emphasizing the adverse effects on human health by the inadequate handling of "ewaste * Other new chapters in the 4th edition include: Toxic metals in food- Toxicity of metals released from medical devices- Gene-environment interactions- Neurotoxicology of metals- Cardiovascular disease- Renal effects of exposure to metals- Gold and gold mining- Iridium- Lanthanum- Lithium and Rhodium

Dr Gunnar F. Nordberg, MD, PhD, is an emeritus Professor at Umea University, Umea, Sweden, where he served as chairman of the Department of Environmental and Occupational Medicine for many years. He has also worked as a scientist at the International Agency for Research on Cancer, Lyon, France and as a Professor and chairman at the Department of Environmental Medicine, Odense University, Denmark. He has published more than 270 papers in Scientific Journals and International Handbooks. In addition, he edited or co-edited 23 Scientific Books and participated in International Task Groups evaluating Risks of Environmental Agents which resulted in 25 international books. Some of these publications resulted from his activities as a chairman of the Scientific Committee on the Toxicology of Metals, International Commission on Occupational Health. He is presently the Task Group Chairman of Cadmium Risk Assessment in the Toxicology and Risk Assessment Group of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry. His Scientific Publications are mainly on Toxicology and Epidemiology of environmental agents, particularly metals. He has coordinated EU- projects on Environmental Epidemiology and Toxicology of Metals and participated as an active scientist in several such projects. He has been the principal investigator of many research projects funded by Swedish funding Agencies and is presently actively involved in such research. He is one of the editors of a Textbook in Swedish "Arbets- och Milj medicin , latest (3rd) Edition 2010.
