A Small Dose of Toxicology is an introductory toxicology textbook that examines the health effects of common chemical agents and places toxicology within the framework of our daily lives. Agents covered include not only obvious candidates such as lead, mercury, and solvents, but familiar compounds such as caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine. Additional chapters cover basic toxicology, targets of toxic agents, and applied toxicology. See the Table of Contents; review the chapters at the A Small Dose of Toxicology web site.

This revised and expanded second edition is available only as an e-book and contains numerous hyperlinks to articles and PowerPoint presentations on Toxipedia, the free, wiki-based toxicology encyclopedia. Links to references and other informational websites are also included. Future editions will feature additional chapters on new topics such as nanotechnology.

Teaching Resources – each chapter has a PowerPoint presentation for use in teaching or chapter review at the A Small Dose of Toxicology web site.
