A Consumer's Dictionary of Household, Yard and Office Chemicals


Product Description
Product Details


If you ever wondered about those long strings of chemical ingredients printed on the container labels of cleaners, pesticides, cosmetics, etc., this book will make them eminently clear. Many of these compounds are extremely dangerous and must be used with informed care. Winter, a well-known writer on environmental health issues whose books include the recent Poisons in Your Food ( LJ 1/91), does not attempt to give highly technical information such as that found in books like N. Irving Sax and Richard J. Lewis's Rapid Guide to Hazardous Chemicals in the Workplace (Van Nostrand Reinhold, 1990. 2d ed.). Instead, she gives an explanation in lay readers' terms of the uses and effects of each substance. In addition to the dictionary listings, which are cross-indexed by subject and by synonym, Winter's book includes an informative and well-documented introduction, a directory that lists associations, poison control centers, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regional offices, and a timely bibliography. Essential for public libraries.-- Eugenia C. Adams, Univ. of Houston-Downtown Lib.
