Newswise — From a look at how environmental and dietary exposure to copper may be linked to Alzheimer’s disease and the effects of consumer microbials on colonic inflammation and colitis to a potential prostate-based activation of a carcinogen in cooked meat and the impact of hydraulic fracturing mixtures on the immune system, the June 2018 issue of Toxicological Sciences features new research which may shed light on public health concerns. In addition, Editor-in-Chief Gary W. Miller introduces a new journal article category, Systematic Reviews, and calls for submissions.
