Carbon, . . .
First of all, thank you for attending our Comp. Tox. seminar. I hope to see you often, at your convenience.
Do you have any literature on pathology from inhaled carbon? One can hardly lean on such a thin reed but some reports indicate that carbon absorbates may be biologically neutralized. What recent data have you found?
J.
Thank you for the book!
