In recent decades, there has been an increasing public awareness of the potential risk to humans from exposure to a wide range of natural and anthropogenic toxic agents in the environment, generating demand for new and improved methods for toxicity assessment and rational means for estimating health risk. There are many environmental agents such as metal ions, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, pesticides, herbicides, UV-light, food additives, and viruses that are known to induce various types of diseases and cancer in humans. For example, toxic metals such as lead, chromium, and mercury have been shown to induce birth effects, and learning disability in children. There is also evidence demonstrating that chemical agents found in our natural environmental (e.g., arsenic) can greatly enhance the risk of cancer in humans. Understanding the effects on humans from exposure to many of these environmental agents is a complex undertaking and one that requires the development and application of toxicologic, pathologic, and epidemiological approaches. The aim of this special issue is to provide an opportunity to share the most recent advances on new techniques and studies dealing with Environmental and Toxicologic Pathology of diseases processes. Relevant topics are invited including clinical toxicology, risk assessment, hazard identification and characterization, exposure assessment and biological monitoring, environmental epidemiology, and studies describing mechanism of cellular and molecular damage.
