Environmental Toxicity

The environmental toxins which cause the most problems are pesticides, solvents and heavy metals. The primary damage caused by the solvents and major pesticide classes is to disrupt neurological function. In addition to being neurotoxic, these compounds are profoundly immunotoxic and are often toxic to the endocrine system as well. Heavy metal toxicity depends on several factors including the dose, route of exposure, and chemical species, as well as the age, gender, genetics, and nutritional status of exposed individuals. Because of their high degree of toxicity, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, and mercury rank among the priority metals that are of public health significance. 

Environmental toxicity evaluations is in the combination with the chemical analyses provide an invaluable tool in determining process change on a discharge as well as providing insight on potential adverse effects. Pesticides are the toxic substances which are released intentionally into our environment to kill the substances like weeds (herbicides), insects (insecticides), fungus (fungicides), rodents (rodenticides), and others. The use of toxic pesticides is to manage the pest problems which have become a common practice around the world.
