About this title


Reproductively Active Chemicals A Reference Guide Richard J. Lewis, Sr. Adverse effects on the human reproductive system due to chemical exposure are a growing concern of occupational safety and health professionals. While the effects of certain chemicals can be difficult to detect, and often go unnoticed or are mistakenly attributed to other causes, they can drastically increase risks of infertility, sterility, birth defects, and post-birth complications. Written by one of the foremost authorities in the field today, Reproductively Active Chemicals is the first book to identify, compile, and fully document the effects of more than 3,300 chemical substances known or suspected to cause adverse effects on human reproductive health. This major reference work features:

  • Cross-indexes by synonym and identification number
  • Vital information drawn from authoritative sources on hazardous chemicals, including chemical properties, toxicity, and synonyms
  • Toxic effects indicating reported dominant reproductive effects

The list of reproductively active materials covered here includes drugs, food additives, preservatives, ores, pesticides, dyes, and many other classes of materials. Some of the information also refers to materials of undefined composition. For each entry, the author provides the "DPIM" number, entry name, CAS number, molecular formula, molecular weight, a description of the material, and physical properties. He specifies effects on the male and female reproductive systems, mating success, fetal effects including abortion and transplacental carcinogenesis, and post-birth effects. Each reproductive or teratogenic effect reported includes the dose and species exposed, a brief characterization of the exposure conditions, and a reference to the source of the data. Human effects are presented separately from animal data to highlight the data's importance. With its broad range of crucial, up-to-date information, Reproductively Active Chemicals is an essential sourcebook for professionals in industrial health and safety and related areas. It offers vital information for protecting current and future generations from the dangers of chemical exposure, and will be especially helpful to industrial hygienists and toxicologists, safety and risk managers, loss prevention personnel, and industrial insurers.
