Assessments of chemical toxicity have regularly placed reliance upon experimental studies which employ environmentally unrealistic exposure regimes. This approach ignores the long-term low-level nature of environmental exposure which facilitates the development of factors which modify the toxicity of such chemicals. Examples of such adaptive mechanisms will be taken from the author's own studies. Factors discussed include the development of protective trace element interactions in target organs… CONTINUE READING
