This study offers insight into the principles of trace environmental quantitative analysis (TEQA), focusing on data reduction and interpretation, sample preparation and instrumental analysis from a wide range of matrices, including sludge, sediment, oil and air, as well as ground, waste and surface water. It draws on the author's own research with metal chelate solid-phase extraction.

The clinical approaches to the chronic degenerative diseases that drain our resources, and compromise our well-being, have become almost exclusively symptom-focused. The common wisdom is that they are idiopathic with final outcomes to be managed rather than prevented or cured. That they are potentially reversible rarely enters into any discussion between doctor and patient. A Homeostatic approach to Cure and Prevention for Researchers and Clinicians Working in Toxicology, Immunology, Neurology, and Internal Medicine Reversibility of Chronic Degenerative Disease and Hypersensitivity, a four-part encyclopedia, offers a much different perspective on chronic degenerative disease, one that disputes the idiopathic label attached to most, as well as the usual fatalistic prognosis. The first volume, Regulating Mechanisms of Chemical Sensitivity, demonstrates that one aspect common to chronic diseases is the disruption of systemic and cellular homeostasis. Environmental pollutants play a large role, along with the contributions of genetic and life style factors, in disrupting the self-regulating mechanisms built into our normally adaptive cells. "As dyshomeostasis develops in the nervous system, causes should be found and removed before the metabolicinduced tissue changes take place and cause autonomous, irreversible fixednamed diseases to occur. ...Single and multiple chemicals in various doses either individually and/or in combinations can cause individual or multiorgan dysfunction of the endocrine system. The astute clinician must be aware of these factors in order to help the patient with hypersensitivity and/or chronic degenerative disease." Chapter 2 Drawing on a vast amount of data and clinical cases attended to by the authors in their own medical practices, this volume examines the complex relation that environmental pollution has with chronic degenerative diseases. It considers its impact on the body’s vast communication networks and what excessive overload does to homeostatic mechanisms. The authors factor in both general and specific environmental loads and how they alter and trigger genetic and non-genetic responses. Volume 1 begins with an overview of the physiologic basis of homeostasis, exploring various ways that the body deals with toxins and the networks it uses to communicate news of assault and makes provisions for adaptation. The text delves into the connective tissue matrix and considers vascular, neural, endocrine, and immune system responses to a variety of noxious assaults. "Both innate and acquired immunity can be and are altered in individuals with chemical sensitivity and chronic degenerative disease. ...With pollutant overload changes can occur in the lymphatic channels, the lymph nodes, and lymph node egress as well as the lymphatic cells. Changes in mucosal function and the effects of the autonomic nervous system are evident with environmental pollutant overload." Chapter 3 Written by two very knowledgeable clinicians, it brings together research of the highest caliber and provides extensive discussions involving sophisticated biochemical, endocrine, and neural science. The text provides clinicians with the knowledge to understand the triggering and processes of degenerative diseases, so that they might develop more efficient treatment and prevention plans. The book also supplies the knowledge and perspective that can lead research to more effective treatments. "The ground regulation system consisting of the connective tissue matrix, fibroblast, macrophages, mast cell, leukocyte, end capillary vessel and autonomic nerves, is a global information system for regulating the dynamics of homeostasis in the body. ...One’s knowledge of this process must be the guide to move through the onset of early end-stage disease and, eventually, see the manifestations to fixed-named autonomous diseases. It is this knowledge that offers us the greatest potential ... for preventing and reversing early homeostatic dysfunction." Chapter 1

Chemical ecology is the ecology of body odour. Every organism uses chemical information in intra- and inter-specific interactions. Animals emit chemicals to attract a mate or to prevent a competitor from mating with the partner they just mated with. Plants emit chemicals to recruit other organisms to take care of their sex life or to attract bodyguards to defend them against their enemies. Chemical cues mediate a whole gamut of interactions in plant and animal communities. Chemical cues are used to communicate, but can also be exploited in espionage or eavesdropping. To understand the ecology of chemical signalling in communities one needs to carry out manipulative experiments. Such experiments have been done throughout the last century. However, in recent years the degree of precision with which such experiments can be done has grown tremendously as a result of rapidly increasing knowledge at the molecular-genetic level. This opens exciting new avenues to chemical ecologists. The connection of molecular genetics to community ecology and ecosystem ecology provides novel tools to take up old questions that were often hard to answer. This book provides an overview of chemical ecology related to different ecosystems and an outlook at novel directions that can be taken in chemical ecology through a molecular-ecological or eco-genomic approach. The book addresses above- and belowground terrestrial systems as well as aquatic systems, and the organisms involved are micro- and macro-organisms, such as plants, arthropods and mammals. The scientific approach presented in this book is characteristic of modern biological research. The book will be useful for scientists and students interested in ecology in general as well as those working in the fields of molecular, chemical, behavioural, population or community ecology.

Are we environmentally victimizing, perhaps even poisoning, our minority and low-income citizens? Proponents of "environmental justice" assert that environmental decisionmaking pays insufficient heed to the interests of those citizens, disproportionately burdens their neighborhoods with hazardous toxins, and perpetuates an insidious "environmental racism." In the first book-length critique of environmental justice advocacy, Christopher Foreman argues that it has cleared significant political hurdles but displays substantial limitations and drawbacks. Activism has yielded a presidential executive order, management reforms at the Environmental Protection Agency, and numerous local political victories. Yet the environmental justice movement is structurally and ideologically unable to generate a focused policy agenda. The movement refuses to confront the need for environmental priorities and trade-offs, politically inconvenient facts about environmental health risks, and the limits of an environmental approach to social justice. Ironically, environmental justice advocacy may also threaten the very constituencies it aspires to serve--distracting attention from the many significant health hazards challenging minority and disadvantaged populations. Foreman recommends specific institutional reforms intended to recast the national dialogue about the stakes of these populations in environmental protection.
