The potential consequences of exposure to chemical substances, on either a population or an individual basis, is a fundamental concern in epidemiology and public health. Books intended to integrate the science of toxicology with the latter 2 disciplines therefore provide the necessary intellectual nexus for informed regulatory and policy decisions, along with needed agendas for research. Principles and Practice of Toxicology in Public Health is one of several recent books intended to provide this important bridge.
