Creating a Safer and Healthier World Without Toxic

Do you know what will happen in the future when the toxicology can not be contained? While advancement of the vision is being accomplished in significant areas, as a Society we must position ourselves to face the challenge of Increasing the Impact and Future Vitality of Toxicology.

So, we must have the strategic plan to reduce this problem. The strategic plan presents a roadmap for meeting this challenge by setting priorities that:

  • Increase Scientific Impact
  • Advocate the Value of Toxicology
  • Build for the Future of Toxicology
  • Expand and Deepen Member Engagement
  • Strengthen Organizational Effectiveness

The strategic plan details how each of these priorities will be executed through a series of outcome-oriented objectives that will be supported by embracing best practices of professional Society oversight, engaging Society leadership at all levels, and by increasing the involvement of members at all career stages to ensure the future relevance and global impact of toxicology. So, let’s think about it.

toxicity????


When talking about toxicity, the easiest way to divide chemicals is by the organ or system they damage. These target organs or systems are often referred to in safety data sheets and toxicology books. The commonest are: the lungs, the skin, the gut, the liver, the kidneys, the nervous system, the blood, the cardiovascular system, the immune system, and the reproductive system. There are even chemicals which can affect hearing.


Chemicals causing liver damage are sometimes called 'hepatotoxins', those which damage the kidneys 'renal toxins', and those harming the nervous system 'neurotoxins'. Chemicals that cause cancer, although they may affect either one or several organs, are lumped together and described as 'carcinogens'. Those that cause birth defects are called 'teratogens'.



"A toxin is generally understood to be a substance that is harmful to biological systems, but within this simple concept lies a great deal of variability. A substance that is harmful at a high dose may be innocuous or even essential at a lower dose. A toxin may damage a specific body system, or it may exert a general effect on an organism. A substance that is toxic to one species may not be toxic to another because of different metabolic pathways or protective mechanisms. And the biologic damage may be temporary, permanent over the organism's lifetime, or expressed over subsequent generations" (H. Frumkin in Levy and Wegman).

New news AbouT toXic cHemiCal.

Hello Friends and welcome to our blog.

As all known, we have shared some information on toxicology databases for consumers which can be used for further readings on toxicology in previous post.

Now, we would like to share a new information on the topic of toxic chemicals which will explain the meaning and the harmness of toxic chemicals.




Lets check it out!!!


Toxic chemicals are chemicals that can produce injury or death when inhaled, ingested, or absorbed through the skin. Damage may result from acute or chronic exposures and involve local tissue or internal organs. The extent of the injury depends on the dose administered, duration of the exposure, physical state, solubility, and interaction with other chemicals. Toxic chemicals include corrosives, systemic poisons, carcinogens, mutagens, and embryotoxins..
