About the book
The development of societies and technologies that bring comfort to our lives nowadays has resulted in the discharge of a diversity of compounds into the environment. Among these compounds, to which we are daily exposed, many can impact human and non-human organisms, thus the need for sustainable development is increasingly essential. In this aspect, toxicology has the role of identifying risks and hazards in order to ensure the health of all living beings. In this context, the understanding of the toxic mechanism of action of different xenobiotics and their mixtures in organisms, as well as the development of new techniques that follow the precept of the 3Rs, are relevant points for the area. In this aspect, this book aims to bring together works that are at the forefront of science and that drive us towards a more sustainable future. We welcome articles reporting on any aspect of chemical-induced toxicity, as well as mechanisms of protection. The development of new methods or protocols to evaluate environmental toxicity utilizing all types of model systems, and especially using alternative methods and protocols are also welcome.
