Despite a wealth of epidemiological evidence of the profound ill-effects of smoking on human health, we know surprisingly little about the pathogenic mechanisms by which tobacco smoke actually causes disease. Indeed, to our knowledge this publication represents the first book that is entirely devoted to the molecular and cellular mechanisms of tobacco-induced diseases. Considering that smoking will directly kill 650 million of those people currently alive, the lack of such a book represents a huge gap in the biomedical literature.This new and important book fills this gap.However, the mid-infrared, or fundamental, vibrational region, contains key information on the molecular activity a the molecular signature - of many materials, ... t } Gamma rays Ultraviolet Infrared Radiowaves 10-11 10Ad 10-7 10-5 10.3 10-1 101 102 Wavelength | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | (cm) [ _T I I I I ...
