Extrapolation of Mutagenicity Testing to the Human

  • Mortimer L. Mendelsohn
Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series (volume 6)


Agricultural genetic toxicology is typical of the challenging problems now being encountered in the rapidly growing field of environmental mutagenesis. Both fields involve a rich diversity of important chemicals, some already known mutagens, a few known carcinogens; both have some hints of human toxicity, but by and large no concrete human data; and both are floundering in the scientific and legal definition of human risk, as well as in regulatory confusion over when and to what degree to control.
