Toxicology is a branch of science that studies the detrimental ramifications of chemicals, substances, and conditions on humans, animals, and the environment. Toxicology is sometimes referred to as the “Science of Safety” because it has evolved from a science devoted to investigating poisons and the harmful consequences of chemical exposures to one committed to examining safety. Toxicology harnesses the power of research to forecast which substances will cause harm and how they will do so, and then disseminates that information to protect public health. Toxicologists will look into the methods through which these compounds cause toxicity, as well as how to detect their presence in different types of samples. Toxicology also entails determining how to accurately diagnose and treat animals and/or people who have been exposed to certain toxicants.
