This is a well-written and informative book about a relatively little known area of expertise for most physicians—chemicals in the environment and their impact on health.
The book is devoted to pesticides, which includes herbicides, insecticides, weed killers, rodenticides, bacteriocides, fungicides, and other chemicals frequently called “pesticides.” It is reasonably well-referenced text. However, some statements regarding health damage could benefit from more textual references to justify the statements presented.
