About this book

Introduction

This book examines the toxicological and health implications of environmental epigenetics and provides knowledge through an interdisciplinary approach. Included in this volume are chapters outlining various environmental risk factors such as phthalates and dietary components, life states such as pregnancy and ageing, hormonal and metabolic considerations, and specific disease risks such as  cancer cardiovascular diseases, and other non-communicable diseases.

Environmental Epigenetics imparts  integrative knowledge of the science of epigenetics and the issues raised in environmental epidemiology.

This book is intended to serve both as a reference compendium on environmental epigenetics for scientists in academia, industry, and laboratories and as a textbook for graduate level environmental health courses.
