An important reference source for today's pesticide researchers

Besides being a nuisance, pests are infamous for damaging food supplies and spreading deadly diseases. Currently, the most effective means of preventing and controlling their onslaught is through the use of pesticides. Unfortunately, this practice is a necessity that does not come without risk.

This thorough, authoritative reference on the most common classes of pesticides and their toxicity examines how their widespread and indiscriminate use has significantly jeopardized the earth's environment as well as the health of man and animal alike. Anticholinesterase Pesticides presents a broad international perspective that looks at studies from around the world, with particular focus on organophosphate (OP) and carbamate (CM) pesticides, and explores the harmful consequences of long- and short-term exposure in people from different occupational settings on a country-by-country basis as well as on an overall global basis. Some of the issues discussed in this eye-opening book include:

  • Exclusive coverage of the topic of epidemiology
  • A look at the integration of aspects from the following: metabolism, epidemiology, toxicology, biochemistry, and molecular biology
  • A full examination of the fundamental science and mechanisms behind pesticide chemicals, as well as biomonitoring
  • Coverage of regulatory issues and therapeutic intervention

From measuring a pesticide's toxic effects to looking at ways to solve this unchecked environmental hazard, Anticholinesterase Pesticides takes on the task of thoroughly investigating a chemical compound that is very much needed—and very little understood.
