Book Review: In search of safety: Chemicals and cancer risk, by John D. Graham, Laura C. Green, and Marc J. Roberts
Date of Original Version
Abstract or Description
John D. Graham, Laura C. Green, and Marc J. Roberts examine the scientific policy conflicts in regulating potentially carcinogenic chemicals. Using detailed case studies of formaldehyde and benzene, they probe the scientific data regarding carcinogenicity and the dose-response relationship, and then describe the history of regulatory action. Both chemicals have precipitated major battles among scientists, have involved at least two regulatory agencies, and have spawned important litigation.
