Abstract

An expert assessment of the effects on human health and the environment posed by ammonia. Prepared by a 14-member task group, the book bases its evaluations on more than 600 published reports of epidemiological, laboratory, and clinical investigations, including controlled studies in man. The most extensive sections of the book are devoted to the effects of ammonia in the aquatic and terrestrial environments where, as a result of urbanization, industry, and farming, significant toxic effects of ammonia may arise. Readers will find especially detailed assessments of the effects on aquatic animals as well as effects on cattle, swine, and poultry resulting from continuous exposure under confined housing conditions. Information on the kinetics and metabolism of ammonia and on its effects on experimental animals and in vitro systems is also presented

Principles for evaluating health risks from chemicals during infancy and early childhood : the need for a special approach / published under the joint sposorship of the United Nations Environment Programme, the International Labour Organisation, the World Health Organization, and on behalf of the Commission of the European Communities

Abstract

Elaborates basic principles for the evaluation of chemical toxicology that are specific to the physiological characteristics of infants and young children. Principles of evaluation, which were worked out by 46 leading experts, are based on a thorough review of data on postnatal physiology, metabolism, and the special factors governing exposure in this age group, including behavioural and cultural conditions. Following background information on relevant features of postnatal morphology, biochemistry, and physiology, chapters assess the kinetics of absorption, biotransformation, and elimination and point out ways in which certain conditions of postnatal development will influence the effects of chemicals on different organs and systems. The book concludes with a discussion of factors that can assist in the identification of children at risk
