Environmental Toxicology, also known as “ecotox” is the study of the toxic effects of various drugs and chemicals on living beings. Harmful effects of such chemical and biological agents as toxicants from pollutants, insecticides, pesticides, and fertilizers can affect an organism and its community by reducing its species diversity and abundance in turn affecting productivity and stability of ecosystem.
There are many sources of environmental toxicity that can lead to the presence of toxicants in our food, water and air. Every day, all of us ingest tiny amounts of these chemicals. The EPA estimates there are more than 20,000 chemicals that our bodies cannot metabolize. Chemicals not metabolized are stored in the fat cells throughout our bodies where they continue to accumulate.
These sources include organic and inorganic pollutants, pesticides and biological agents. There can be so called point sources of pollution, for instance the drains from a specific factory but also non-point sources (diffuse sources) like the rubber from car tires that contain various chemicals and heavy metals that are spread in the environment.

Ecotoxicology is a branch of science that deals with the nature, effects, and interactions of substances that are harmful to the environment. It is to be distinguished from toxicology because it focuses on the impacts of chemicals on ecological groupings of organisms rather than on individuals; i.e. on populations, communities and ecosystems. Biomonitoring is a significant tool in ecotoxicology for humans as well as wildlife. Ecotoxicology plays a key part in informing ecological risk assessment and hence in the management of the production, use and disposal of industrial and agricultural chemicals. Pesticides and other industrial chemicals are at the root of many pollution problems. Ecotoxicology plays a key part in informing the assessment of risks from chemicals to ecological systems and hence in managing their impacts.

Occupational Toxiology deals with the study of exposure of people to toxic agents during the course of their work. Work-related exposures are studied by use of inhalation and skin exposure monitoring as well as biomarkers of exposure, susceptibility and effect, usually as part of epidemiological exposures.
Modeling of dose-response relationships will be used to derive a safe level for workers using data from small scale experimental (animal or volunteer) studies. A cursory glance at the Group 1 carcinogen list of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) should be evidence enough from this perspective. The epidemic of asbestos-related cancer that continues in some countries.

Agriculture chemicals, otherwise referred to as “agrochemicals,” are a large family of chemicals that cover many pest issues associated with farming. Pesticides are designed to control pests, but they can also be toxic to desirable plants and animals, including humans. The three diverse types of pesticide poisoning include the following and among them, the first is single and short-term which is very high level of exposure that can be experienced by individuals who commit suicide, as well as pesticide formulators. The second is long-term high-level exposure, which can occur in pesticide manufacturers and formulators. The third is long-term low-level exposure in which individuals are exposed to pesticide residues in food, air, water, soil, and sediment.

The study of dangerous effects on human beings by chemicals used in the workplace, the products produced by companies, and the wastes created in manufacturing is known as industrial toxicology. Particular industries, such as the pharmaceutical and pesticide industries commonly should conduct many studies and experiments to demonstrate the safety of the chemicals that they develop .The product development toxicology biochemical and molecular toxicology, chemical toxicology, heavy metals and acute zinc and iron toxicity are few industrial effects.

Global warming is refers to a drastic change in climate due to increase in the temperature of the Earth's atmosphere. The increased quantities of CO2 and other greenhouse gases spread by the burning of fossil fuels, agriculture, land clearing and other human activities are believed to be the primary sources of the global warming. Global warming may cause rise in sea levels due to the melting of the glaciers, as well as a increase in frequency and severity of storms and other severe weather events.

Soil toxicology is a branch of environmental toxicology that studies the toxicity of chemical, physical or biological substances to organisms and plants that inhabit the soil. Soil has a natural ability to retain most pollutants released into the environment. Accidental spills and a history of various land disposal and storage practices can result in the release of hazardous substances into soil environments. Soil contamination or soil pollution as part of land degradation is caused by the presence of XenoBionis (human-made) chemicals or other alteration in the natural soil environment. It is caused by industrial activities, agricultural chemicals, and by improper disposal of waste. Environmental Microbiology (EMI) is devoted to the advancement of our understanding of microbial interactions and microbial processes in the environment. Microorganisms are cost and effective agents for in-situ remediation of agricultural, domestic, and industrial wastes. They are the best remediation for subsurface pollution in soils, sediments and marine environments. The ability of each microorganism to degrade toxic waste depends on the nature of each contaminant.

Aquatic toxicology is the study of the effects of chemicals that are manufactured. The study also includes various aspects like anthropogenic, natural materials, and activities on aquatic organisms at various levels of organization, from subcellular level through individual organisms to communities and ecosystems. Aquatic toxicology can be described as a multidisciplinary field which integrates various other fields like toxicology, aquatic chemistry, and aquatic ecology. This field of study includes marine water sediments, freshwater and sediment environments. The common tests are standardized acute and chronic toxicity tests.
