Abstract

Continuing development of new products designed to improve our productivity and standard of living brings an increasing number of unsuspecting people into subtle or overt exposure to an ever-burgeoning variety of chemical fumes, liquids, and solids. With the nuclear age now established and the space age in its infancy, more people will be subjected to a wider variety of particle beams, rays, electromagnetic waves, motion, space, isolation, noise, heat and cold, and sensory deprivation than ever before.
