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?

Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) were widely used as refrigerants and as propellants in aerosol cans. Their destructive effect on the ozone layer and their widespread presence were discovered in the 1970s. Manufacturing of CFCs was phased out and in 1978; they were banned in the United States. By the late 1980s, the production of CFCs was banned in many countries. In general, CFCs have been successfully reduced and new technology has replaced their role as refrigerants.
