What is Toxicology?

Toxicology is the study of the adverse effects of chemical, physical, or biological agents on people, animals, and the environment.

Toxicologists are scientists trained to investigate, interpret, and communicate the nature of those effects.

Did You Know?

The release of the chemical, methyl isocyanate (mic), in Bhopal India in 1984 caused the highest number of acute human deaths due to air pollution, probably close to 15,000 deaths. It also resulted in severe injuries to more than 100,000, who suffered permanent injuries to the eyes and respiratory tract. At the time of this accident, there was no information available about how potent this chemical was. Toxicologists working with chemical engineers were then asked to review practices of storing and transporting volatile organic chemicals.
