Inhalation toxicology: Awareness, identifiability, statistical perspectives and risk assessment. (English) Zbl 0860.62098
Summary: We are susceptible to xenobiotic environmental toxicity effects through a complex combination of absorption, inhalation and ingestion. Based on our belief that inhalation is the primary industrial/occupational/environmental site of uptake of toxins, we examine the basic awareness and identifiability issues through an interdisciplinary approach, raise the statistical perspectives, and discuss the assessment of this compound risk in a sound statistical manner.
