Asbestos and Disease provides a much-needed comprehensive compendium and presentation of accumulated information on asbestos and disease.
Organized into five parts, this book begins with the nature, occurrence, properties, mining, milling, manufacturing, and use of asbestos minerals. Some chapters follow on the identification, quantification, and environmental distribution of asbestos fibers. This book also tackles the asbestotic and neoplastic effects of asbestos. The pathogenic mechanisms, prevention, and control of asbestos are also addressed.
This work will provide nonspecialists with easily comprehensible and meaningful data that will assist them in their endeavors in this field.
