Alcohol Interactions with Drugs and Chemicals is a concise volume that identifies, documents, and assesses the capacity of alcohol to alter the toxicity of chemical pollutants and drugs in animal models and humans. The book systematically assesses interactions according to general chemical classes of inorganic and organic agents. It also presents an integrative discussion of the significance of these findings to public health.
Alcohol Interactions with Drugs and Chemicals will be a valuable reference tool for environmental scientists, toxicologists, epidemiologists, and alcohol researchers studying the interactions of alcohol with drugs and chemical pollutants.
