Humans are constantly, and increasingly, exposed to chemicals - some naturally occurring and some manufactured. Exposure to some of these chemicals, or to large amounts of them, can bring risks to human health and the environment. Toxicity and Risk sets out the political, social, legal and scientific basis of risk assessment and risk management. Taking a highly multidisciplinary approach, the book discusses concepts of importance to industry, academia, health and safety bodies, such as individual risk and social risk. It also discusses the role of government and the judicial system, and the contrast between EU, UK and US legal and administrative frameworks for handling risk analysis.
