Summary

Hunter's Disease of Occupations is the leading book about diseases caused by occupations, and about the assessment, management, and treatment of the individual patient. The book is for clinicians dealing with specific patients, as well as for occupational physicians and other occupationalhealth professionals. This new edition continues this objective but also includes environmental diseases that arise from industrial or agricultural activity; therefore the book will also be of value to public health and environmental health physicians. The text is comprehensive, and continues toinclude the traditional disorders but now it also incorporates new areas of concern such as disorders connected with highly technological industries, and the effects of pesticides and other chemicals in the environment.
