About the Authors
  • 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.

    • Topical subject
    •  Essential reference for health and safety professionals and researchers

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...a useful summary of current knowledge about almost all aspects of indoor air pollution." Barry Halliwell and Carroll E. Cross, New England Journal of Medicine

    "The writing is easily read and understood, and a nonscientifically trained reader will have no trouble understanding....A very useful and welcome book; highly recommended for interested readers at all levels." J. Douville, Choice

    "I have no hesitation in recommending this volume to those interested in the expanding field of indoor pollution." Journal of Applied Toxicology

    "This is a book on problems, not solutions. However, if successfully defining a problem is half the solution, Indoor Air Pollution is a good start....systematic and cohesive." Indoor Air Quality Update

    "...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." T. Beritic, Lancet
