Metals, Fertility
and Reproductive Toxicity

by Mari S. Golub

Metals, Fertility, and Reproductive Toxicity examines the effects of metals found in the everyday environment on fertility rates in humans and animal populations.

This great book:

  • Includes summaries from reviews and secondary sources, along with more detailed descriptions of recent and key studies, on the reproductive toxicity of mercury, cadmium, and arsenic.
  • Summarizes studies on the reproductive and developmental effects of organotin compounds.
  • Discusses the reproductive and embryo/fetal toxicity of aluminum, uranium, and vanadium in mammals.
  • Provides a comprehensive review of the effects of the trace metals cadmium, lead, mercury, chromium, and arsenic on ovarian function.
  • Covers metals and metal-working industries that demonstrate clear trends related to the effects of environmental and/or workplace metals on male reproduction.
  • Focuses on human health data, on laboratory animal data aimed at elucidating human health effects, and important themes related to wildlife populations.
