How Can We Best Evaluate, and Compensate for, Genetic Hazards in the Environment and Workplace
Much of this conference has been concerned with issues created by the “New Genetics,” however that be defined. We have turned in this closing session to a much less spectacular issue, but an issue that, in the aggregate, will probably impact, directly or indirectly, on just as many people as any of the other issues covered at this meeting. I refer to the question of the genetic implications of a wide variety of potentially mutagenic exposures in the workplace and the environment.
