ndoor Air Pollution addresses the problems arising from pollutants that all too commonly contaminate the indoor environment, including biological sources such as bacteria, fungi and molds, common combustion products, radon and other sources of radiation, solvents used in industry and the home, asbestos and dust pollution. The aim is to provide a balanced account of the health risks associated with these major pollutants and to quantify the scale of the problem on a pollution-by-pollution basis. Each chapter covers exposure levels, sources of pollution, and routes of uptake, health effects, control measures, and regulatory guidelines.
'With its broad scope this comprehensive guide will appeal to physicians and non-physicians alike and will benefit readers with limited access to journals and review texts.' The Lancet 'It would make an excellent starting point for any serious student or interested lay-person on the current thinking regarding indoor air quality problems. Environmental and public health students as well as environmental health officers would certainly benefit immensely, especially at the paper-back price.' Leonard S. Levy, Indoor Environment
