There are two main branches of toxicology: analytical toxicology and applied toxicology.
Analytical toxicology is concerned with the detection and identification of toxic substances in biological samples. This can be done using a variety of methods, including chromatography, spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry.

Applied toxicology is concerned with the prevention, evaluation, treatment, and monitoring of poisoning. This includes the development of antidotes, the design of safety regulations, and the education of the public about toxic substances.

Toxicology is a rapidly growing field, as the number of known toxic substances continues to increase. Toxicologists play an important role in protecting public health by ensuring that the risks of exposure to toxic substances are minimized.

Here are some of the key areas of research in toxicology:
The development of new methods for detecting and identifying toxic substances.
The study of the mechanisms by which toxic substances cause harm.
The development of new treatments for poisoning.
The design of safety regulations for toxic substances.
The education of the public about toxic substances.

Toxicology is a complex and challenging field, but it is also a very rewarding one. Toxicologists have the opportunity to make a real difference in the world by helping to protect public health.

Here are some of the ways that toxicology can be used to protect public health:
To develop safety regulations for toxic substances. Toxicologists can help to assess the risks of exposure to toxic substances and to develop regulations that will minimize those risks.

To design antidotes for poisoning. Toxicologists can study the mechanisms by which toxic substances cause harm and develop antidotes that can counteract those effects.

To educate the public about toxic substances. Toxicologists can educate the public about the risks of exposure to toxic substances and how to prevent poisoning.

Toxicology is a vital field of research that is essential for protecting public health. By studying the adverse effects of chemicals on living organisms, toxicologists can help to prevent poisoning, develop new treatments for poisoning, and design safety regulations for toxic substances.

Most industrial chemical exposures occur through the skin or by inhalation. However, these risks can be limited and controlled in the workplace.
