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?

In 1775, the work of Dr. Percival Pott led to the discovery of a high incidence of scrotal cancer among chimney sweeps of London. Although adverse effects of occupational exposure to lead and mercury and other materials were recognized for more than a century, Dr. Pott’s observation showed the initial association of a specific occupation with cancer risk.
