Human Toxicology of Chemical Mixtures
Toxic Consequences Beyond the Impact of One-Component Product and Environmental Exposures
by Harold I. Zeliger

Human Toxicology of Chemcial Mixtures considers how exposure to toxic mixtures affects the different physiological systems and organs.

Human Toxicology of Chemical Mixtures evaluates various sources of exposure, including:

  • air, water, and soil pollution
  • in utero exposure
  • chemicals contained in foods, cosmetics, and domestic cleaning products, adhesives and paints
  • industrial chemicals
  • pesticides
  • electromagnetic radiation
  • chemicals ingested or inhaled during the use of alcohol, tobacco and narcotics

Human Toxicology of Chemical Mixtures also examines the interplay between exposure to these mixtures and prevalence of various diseases and conditions, including:

  • autism
  • attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • developmental neurotoxicology
  • multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS)
  • chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)
  • fibromyalgia (FM)
  • Gulf War Syndrome
  • cancer and cancer clusters

Addressed finally are the profound policy implications for formulation, labeling and use of chemical products, and it proposes more stringent exposure limits and warning requirements in light of the newly recognized toxic effects that are directly attributable to the mixture of toxic lipophilic and hydrophilic chemicals.
