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?

Viral hepatitis, including hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C, are distinct diseases that affect the liver. Other causes of hepatitis include drugs and medications. Each type of hepatitis has different hepatitis symptoms and causes. Treatments for hepatitis also depend on the type. Approximately 1 in 12 people worldwide have chronic viral hepatitis, and most of them donít know they are infected. In the US, African Americans have a substantially higher rate of chronic hepatitis C infection than other ethnic groups. Within the African-American community, chronic liver disease, often hepatitis C-related, is a leading cause of death among people aged 45 to 64 years.
