Pollution refers to the presence and undesirable changes occurring in the physical, chemical, and biological composition of the natural environment consisting of air, water, and soil that has harmful effects. Pollutants, the components of pollution, can be either foreign substances/energies or naturally occurring contaminants. Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into the environment and that is called environmental pollution.
Regulatory toxicology comprises the study of a toxicity profile that is compared with other known toxicants. Regulatory toxicology works as the major center for laws that limit exposures for people and the environment. The regulatory toxicology is to control production, use, and deposition of dangerous materials to prevent adverse effects on human health and the environment. This requires enough information on the hazardous properties of a chemical compound, their relevance to man and of human and environmental exposure, which is a prerequisite for appropriate risk assessment and the decision whether regulatory consequences are warranted
The Economic toxicology alludes to the unsafe effect engaged with the use of food additives in food preservation and processing, man-made fertilizers and pesticides in advanced agriculture. Poisoning accidentally or occupationally which is so common in the use of synthetic insecticides and the adulteration of foodstuffs by these toxic chemicals are areas of attention in economic toxicology.
Climate change, also called global warming, refers to the rise in average surface temperatures on Earth. Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns when that change lasts for an expanded timeframe (i.e., decades to millions of years). Environmental change may refer to a change in average weather conditions, or in the time variation of climate inside the setting of longer-term normal conditions. Climate change is caused by factors, for example, biotic procedures, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics, and volcanic emissions. Certain human activities have been identified as essential drivers of ongoing climate change. Weathering, degradation of materials by abiotic environmental forces and associated biotic processes.
Medical toxicology is a subspecialty of medicine focusing on toxicology and providing the diagnosis, management, and prevention of poisoning and other adverse effects due to medications, occupational and environmental toxicants, and biological agents. Medical toxicologists are involved in the assessment and treatment of a wide variety of problems including acute or chronic poisoning, adverse drug reactions (ADRs), drug overdoses, envenomation, substance abuse, industrial accidents, and other chemical exposures.
Occupational Toxicology is involved with health effects from exposure to chemicals in the workplace. The objective of the occupational toxicologist is to prevent adverse health effects in workers that arise from exposures in their work environment. Occupational toxicologists assess the hazards and risks to health posed by chemicals encountered in the workplace. The risk assessments provided by occupational toxicologists are crucial for avoiding ill health linked to work.
Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry describes original experimental or theoretical work that significantly advances understanding in the area of environmental toxicology, environmental chemistry, and hazard/risk assessment. Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry is interdisciplinary topics that integrate the field of toxicology in the environment; environmental, analytical, and molecular chemistry of ecosystem.
Epidemiology and Biostatistics apply, develops, and teaches the skills needed to understand the determinants of disease and improve health. The descriptive and analytic approaches (epidemiology) needed to investigate and understand the complex causes of major public health problems and to develop effective strategies to prevent them. The biostatistics program centers on the development and application of theory and methods in the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data used in public health and other biomedical sciences.
Environmental Health and Safety is a discipline and specialty that studies and implements practical aspects of environmental protection and safety at work. From an environmental standpoint, it involves creating a systematic approach to complying with environmental regulations, such as managing waste or air emissions all the way to helping sites reduce the company's carbon footprint. From a health & safety standpoint, it involves creating organized efforts and procedures for identifying workplace hazards and reducing accidents and exposure to harmful situations and substances.
Waste management is the collection, transport, processing, managing and monitoring of waste materials. Waste management is a distinct practice from resource recovery which focuses on the optimum utilization of the natural resources with social responsibility. It aims at unearthing the recent innovations and developments in this field with a view to check global warming. All the activities and actions required to manage waste from its inception to its final disposal. This includes amongst other things collection, transport, treatment and disposal of waste together with monitoring and regulation. It also encompasses the legal and regulatory framework that relates to waste management encompassing guidance on recycling.
The most important risk in agriculture derives from exposure to pesticides. Evaluation of the extensive toxicological studies required for all pesticides. From the past 50 years, agriculture has deeply changed with a massive utilization of pesticides and fertilizers to enhance crop protection and production, food quality and food preservation. Pesticides are unique chemicals as they are intrinsically toxic for several biological targets, are deliberately spread into the environment, and their toxicity has a limited species selectivity. The post-marketing risk assessment takes place during the use of pesticides and aims at assessing the risk for exposed operators.
Health resources include all the staff that is directly or indirectly involved in any health issue concern. The field of health human resources deals with issues such as planning, development, performance, management, retention, information, and research on human resources for the health care sector. Health Economics and Public Policies in the field identifying with authority, administration, and organization of public health, health awareness systems, clinics, and doctor's facility systems.
A gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth's atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, CFCs, and other pollutants. Global warming, also referred to as climate change, is the observed century-scale rise in the average temperature of the Earth's climate system and its related effects. Multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming. Future climate change and associated impacts will differ from region to region. Anticipated effects include increasing global temperatures, rising sea levels, changing precipitation, and expansion of deserts in the subtropics.
Green chemistry is the design of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances. Green chemistry applies across the life cycle of a chemical product, including its design, manufacture, use, and ultimate disposal. Green chemistry focuses on the environmental impact of chemistry, including technological approaches to preventing pollution and reducing the consumption of nonrenewable resources. It prevents pollution at the molecular level.
Bioaccumulation is the accumulation of substances, such as pesticides, or other chemicals in an organism. Bioaccumulation occurs when an organism absorbs a substance at a rate faster than that at which the substance is lost by catabolism and excretion. Biotransformation can strongly modify the bioaccumulation of chemicals in an organism. Extensive damage to organisms and declines in wildlife populations have been observed together with long-term bioaccumulation and biomagnification of persistent xenobiotic chemicals. Heavy metals, especially organic or biomethylated mercury, lead, cadmium, and organic tin compounds have caused environmental damage through bioaccumulation on a local scale.
A mutagen is a substance or agent that induces a heritable change in cells or organisms. A carcinogen is a substance that induces unregulated growth processes in cells or tissues of multicellular animals, leading to the disease called cancer. Mutagenesis refers to processes that result in genetic change, and carcinogenesis (the processes of tumor development) may result from mutagenic events. Carcinogenesis is a process where uncontrolled cell division occurs leading to the formation of a malignant tumor. Mutagenesis is a process characterized by a change in the genetic material of an organism by the influence of mutagens. Mutagenesis can occur naturally and leads to cancer.
Environmental Compliance covers a broad range of environmental laws, regulations, and standards create to manage our environment. In recent years, environmental concerns have led to a significant increase in the number and scope of compliance imperatives across all global regulatory environments. Being closely related, environmental concerns and compliance activities are increasingly being aligned with corporate performance goals and being integrated to some extent to avoid conflicts, wasteful overlaps, and gaps. Pre-processing, performing calculations and validating the data for compliance with any alert or reporting levels.
