Hair as a Bioresource in Archaeological Chemistry

By Andrew S. Wilson

Abstract

NoThis authoritative book combines contributions from experts in academic, governmental and industrial environments, to provide a unique, comprehensive look at: \ud \ud - Why hair can serve as an invaluable bio-resource in toxicology, with up-to-date reviews on hair growth, hair fibre formation and hair pigmentation \ud - Information (including regulatory details) on the exposure of hair (and by extension the body) to drug and non-drug chemicals and pollutants \ud - Toxicological issues relevant to the use of hair products (including colourants, shampoos and depilatories) \ud - The ability of hair to capture information on personal identity, chemical exposure, and environmental interactions \ud - How hair can provide an understanding of human life from archaeological and historical perspectives \ud - Future direction in the use of hair in toxicology \ud \ud Hair in Toxicology: An Important Biomonitor is ideal as a reference and guide to investigations in the biomedical, biochemical and pharmaceutical sciences at the graduate and post graduate level
