Heavy metals such as lead and mercury continue to effect human and environmental health. Heavy metals not only persist in the environment but continue to be produced and released by mining, manufacturing and environmental processes. Human exposure persists and even expands as humankind develops more manufacturing and mining processes, encroaches on more land area, and develops uses for a wider variety of heavy metals. Progress has been made in understanding the toxicology of metals, prevention has been improved and treatment refined over the years. Despite these advances more research needs to be done.
We invite contributors to this collection of Toxics that will focus on heavy metal toxicology. We invite all papers addressing this problem. Theoretical papers will also be considered. We especially encourage papers examining metal-metal interactions and pharmacologic treatment of heavy metal exposure.
