Networking of Mutagens in Environmental Toxicology

Research output: Book/ReportAnthologyScientificpeer-review

Abstract

This book covers the latest environmental issues based on current research objectives. All chapters are fundamentally interlinked and focus on deciphering the networking of mutagens in environmental toxicity and human health. Our changing environment, climate, and lifestyle factors are growing concerns in the 21st century. The existing mutagens, either physical or chemical, are responsible for environmental toxicity. These toxicants are carcinogenic and not limited to naturally occurring chemicals or biologicals, but can also be man-made, such as 'radiation'. The networking of mutagens can have a broad range of effects on both the environment and human health. Accordingly, the respective chapters explore the networking of mutagens in connection with environmental toxicity, and address:

1. Extant types of man-made radiation and their effects on the environment and biological systems
2. Heavy metal contaminations: Effects on environmental health
3. Networking of environmental pollutants in the air, dust, soil, water, and natural toxins in the environment: Exposure and health
4. The molecular interaction of environmental carcinogens with DNA: An oncoinformatics approach
5. Fundamentals of nonotoxicity, carcinogenicity, mutagenic and neurotoxicity in environmental health
6. The role of antioxidants and medicinal plants in reducing the impacts of disease-causing pollutants

A sequel to Perspectives in Environmental Toxicology, this book highlights the latest developments in the field of environmental toxicology. It offers a valuable resource for researchers, scholars and graduate students alike.
