Il veleno nel piatto. I rischi mortali nascosti in quello che mangiamo

Marie-Monique Robin

editore: Feltrinelli

pagine: 435

Moltissime ricerche scientifiche ed epidemiologiche segnalano che nel corso degli ultimi trent'anni il tasso di incidenza dei tumori è aumentato del 40 per cento in paesi come gli Stati Uniti, la Norvegia e la Svezia. Sempre in questo lasso di tempo la progressione delle leucemie e dei tumori cerebrali tra i bambini è stato del 2 per cento annuo. Come spiegare questa epidemia inquietante, che colpisce soprattutto i paesi "sviluppati"? Alla domanda risponde Marie-Monique Robin in questo libro choc, frutto di un'inchiesta condotta per due anni tra America del Nord, Asia ed Europa (anche in Italia). Nell'appoggiarsi su numerosi studi scientifici, ma anche sulle testimonianze dei ricercatori e dei rappresentanti delle agenzie di regolamentazione, l'autrice dimostra che la causa principale di questa vera e propria epidemia è di tipo ambientale. In particolare per la presenza di decine di molecole chimiche che hanno invaso il nostro ambito quotidiano e l'alimentazione dalla fine della Seconda guerra mondiale. Per questo, l'autrice ripercorre l'intera catena produttiva del cibo: dall'utilizzo dei pesticidi nei campi fino all'impiego di additivi e plastiche per uso alimentare nei nostri piatti. Nel fare ciò mette a nudo il sistema di valutazione e omologazione dei prodotti chimici, attraverso gli esempi emblematici dei pesticidi, dell'aspartame e del bisfenolo A. E infine descrive le pressioni e le manipolazioni messe in atto dall'industria chimica per mantenere sul mercato prodotti altamente tossici.

Intossicazioni acute. Veleni, farmaci e droghe

a cura di R. O. Kent,

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 648

Questa seconda edizione viene pubblicata a dieci anni di distanza dalla prima. In questo periodo, il manuale si è confermato un utilissimo ausilio per i medici che devono affrontare quotidianamente le emergenze tossicologiche. Il testo affronta infatti tutti gli aspetti clinici, diagnostici e terapeutici delle intossicazioni acute, con la descrizione dettagliata delle sostanze tossiche (farmaci, tossine naturali, droghe d'abuso, sostanze chimiche e industriali, potenziali armi chimiche per aggressioni personali o per attacchi terroristici) e degli antidoti o farmaci utilizzati per il loro trattamento; tratta inoltre alcuni aspetti di tossicologia clinica, difficilmente reperibili su altri testi di medicina o di specialità mediche. In questa edizione, oltre a essere stati apportati aggiornamenti sull'uso di nuovi antidoti e sulle caratteristiche dei più recenti farmaci della farmacopea tradizionale, vengono presentate le nuove conoscenze sui prodotti delle medicine "non convenzionali" che in questi anni hanno avuto ampia diffusione.

Toxicological Risk Assessment of Chemicals

A Practical Guide

Elsa Nielsen, Grete Ostergaard
e altri

editore: Informa Healthcare

pagine: 448

Unlike many existing books on toxicology that cover either toxicity of a particular substance or toxicity of chemicals on particular organ systems, Toxicological Risk Assessment of Chemicals: A Practical Guide lays out the principle activities of conducting a toxicological risk assessment, including international approaches and methods for the risk assessment of chemical substances. It illustrates each step in the process: hazard identification, a dose response assessment, and exposure assessment. The book also summarizes the basic concepts of interaction of chemicals in mixtures and discusses various approaches to testing such mixtures. Features: Addresses standards from all international regulatory agencies Presents the steps in risk assessment, including hazard identification, exposure assessment, and risk characterization Covers the assessment of multiple chemical exposures or chemical mixtures Contains data from both human and animal studies Explains the linearized multi-stage mathematical model widely used by the US EPA for characterizing

Principles and Methods of Toxicology

A. Wallace Hayes

editore: Informa Healthcare

pagine: 2296

Founded on the paradox that all things are poisons and the difference between poison and remedy is quantity, the determination of safe dosage forms the base and focus of modern toxicology. In order to make a sound determination there must be a working knowledge of the biologic mechanisms involved and of the methods employed to define these mechanisms. While the vastness of the field and the rapid accumulation of data may preclude the possibility of absorbing and retaining more than a fraction of the available information, a solid understanding of the underlying principles is essential. Extensively revised and updated with four new chapters and an expanded glossary, this fifth edition of the classic text, Principles and Methods of Toxicology provides comprehensive coverage in a manageable and accessible format. New topics include 'toxicopanomics', plant and animal poisons, information resources, and non-animal testing alternatives. Emphasizing the cornerstones of toxicology-people differ, dose matters, and things change, the book begins with a review of the history of toxicology and followed by an explanation of basic toxicological principles, agents that cause toxicity, target organ toxicity, and toxicological testing methods including many of the test protocols required to meet regulatory needs worldwide. The book examines each method or procedure from the standpoint of technique and interpretation of data and discusses problems and pitfalls that may be associated with each. The addition of several new authors allow for a broader and more diverse treatment of the ever-changing and expanding field of toxicology. Maintaining the high-quality information and organizational framework that made the previous editions so successful, Principles and Methods of Toxicology, Fifth Edition continues to be a valuable resource for the advanced practitioner as well as the new disciple of toxicology.
