Toxicology Disasters: Cause and Consequences, a volume in the History of Toxicology and Environmental Health series, provides an historical overview of significant toxicological disasters which involved chemical exposure of humans, animals or the environment. The book documents the timeline of events and the legacy of the resulting exposure which occurred within a specific period of time, but with long lasting consequences. Case studies of toxicological incidents and a wide range of categories, including environmental, industrial, pharmaceutical, domestic and international are not only discussed from a historical perspective but also regarding their impacted toxicology, regulation and our current use of these chemicals. The book will help toxicologists, academics and students from environmental health and toxicology departments, environmental/occupational health regulators, and industrial hygiene/safety personnel gain a better understanding of the arc of a toxicological disaster from its origins, root causes of the problem, and initial and long-term assessments and management. Organizes historical overviews of each disaster into specific categories (ex. environmental, industrial, pharmaceutical, domestic, and international) for easy reference Takes a "soup to nuts” approach when discussing toxicological incidents, from origins and causes to ultimate health and/or regulatory consequences Provides detailed explanations on how these disasters impacted the toxicology field and fueled regulatory decisions

This book addresses the long-overdue imbalance in disaster management: an over-emphasis on post-disaster assistance and a lack of attention to vulnerability reduction. It answers the fundamental question in this debate: how can we mould pre-disaster development initiatives to become the most appropriate means for vulnerability reduction The book reasserts and reapplies some of the basic concepts and issues which emerged in the 1960s and 1970s, with the message that development is a prime medium both of vulnerability and its reduction.
