Assessment of the carcinogenicity of chemical substances in general is a societal necessity, particularly in the context of workers' health. This topic is also of major importance to industry, since the classification of a substance as a carcinogen has serious consequences for both producer and consumer. The assessment of carcinogenic risk of inorganic substances, however, has traditionally been based on the unproven assumption of a simple analogy with the carcinogenicity of organic substances. Carcinogenicity of Inorganic Substances considers this assumption critically in the light of current knowledge, presented by leading authorities in the field. The book is the first to define the state of scientific knowledge about carcinogenicity of metals, their compounds and inorganic substances generally, and the combination of a multidisciplinary science base with consideration of its practical applications to health and safety makes this book unique in approach as well as subject matter. It will provide a valuable source of guidance on how to cope with the perceived shortcomings in this area and will be of interest to chemists in all fields, particularly those involved with risk assessment, health and safety, and toxicology.
