Toxicology Disasters: Cause and Consequences,a volume in theHistory of Toxicology and Environmental Healthseries, provides an historical overview of significant toxicological disasters which involved chemical exposure of humans, animals or the environment. The book documents the timeline of events and the legacy of the resulting exposure which occurred within a specific period of time, but with long lasting consequences. Case studies of toxicological incidents and a wide range of categories, including environmental, industrial, pharmaceutical, domestic and international are not only discussed from a historical perspective but also regarding their impacted toxicology, regulation and our current use of these chemicals.
The book will help toxicologists, academics and students from environmental health and toxicology departments, environmental/occupational health regulators, and industrial hygiene/safety personnel gain a better understanding of the arc of a toxicological disaster from its origins, root causes of the problem, and initial and long-term assessments and management.


  • Organizes historical overviews of each disaster into specific categories (ex. environmental, industrial, pharmaceutical, domestic, and international) for easy reference
  • Takes a “soup to nuts” approach when discussing toxicological incidents, from origins and causes to ultimate health and/or regulatory consequences
  • Provides detailed explanations on how these disasters impacted the toxicology field and fueled regulatory decisions
