Summary:
Phytochemistry, the Military and Health: Phytotoxins and Natural Defenses discusses the role that phytochemicals play as friend and foe in the military, including insights aimed to help develop antidotes against phytochemicals and other chemical weapons. Filling a gap between drug discovery, security and emergency medicine, this book describes which plants can be categorized for protection and controls, which can be helpful in military operations, and those that can be used as deterrents or as emergency medicines. Carefully designed to show the contribution that phytochemicals play in safety and security, this book is useful for researchers, regulators and anyone interested in plant chemistry. Phytochemicals play a major role in the day to day management of diseases and health. There has been much research into their effectiveness as community medicines and as alternatives to conventional drugs. However, the role that phytochemicals play in the military, counterterrorism and security has been overlooked. Covers the contribution that phytochemicals play in safety and security Contains insights that will help in the development of antidotes against phytochemical and other chemical weapons Categorizes plants in terms of their usefulness as well as the potential security risks they possess
