Environmental Toxicology and Mutagenicity

Environmental toxicology is the science and practices of the adverse effects mainly of chemicals other man-made agents in the environment and through the environment. The targeted receptors of these adverse effects may be both the ecosystem and the human. Environmental toxicology includes the study of chemical substances  potential and actual contaminants – polluting air, water, soil and food, their impacts upon the structure and function of ecological systems, including man as well as the use of these results for decision making and environmental management.

Mutagenicity refers to the induction of permanent transmissible changes in the structure of the genetic material of cells or organisms. These changes (mutations) may involve a single gene or a block of genes.
