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.

Pharmacology is the branch of biology which deals with the study of drug action. A drug can be broadly defined as any man-made, natural, or endogenous molecule which exerts a biochemical or physiological effect on the cell, tissue, organ, or organism. More specifically, it is the study of the interactions that occur between a living organism and chemicals/pharmaceuticals that affect normal or abnormal biochemical function.
The field encompasses drug composition and properties, synthesis and drug design, molecular and cellular mechanisms, organ/systems mechanisms, signal transduction/cellular communication, molecular diagnostics, interactions, toxicology, chemical biology, therapy, and medical applications and anti-pathogenic capabilities.
Toxicology is a branch of Pharmacology concerned with nature, effects and detection of Poison.

Risk assessment is the determination of quantitative or qualitative estimate of risk related to a well-defined situation and a recognized threat (also called hazard). Quantitative risk assessment requires calculations of two components of risk (R): the magnitude of the potential loss (L), and the probability (p) that the loss will occur.

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 aerosphere. 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 polar ice caps, as well as a growth in happening and severity of storms and other severe weather events.

Air pollution and climate change are closely related. Air pollutants that are harmful to human health and ecosystems contribute to climate change by affecting the amount of incoming sunlight that is reflected or absorbed by the atmosphere, with some pollutants rising and others reducing the temperature on Earth. These short-lived climate-forcing pollutants (SLCPs) include methane, black carbon, ground-level ozone, and sulfate aerosols. Black carbon and methane in particular have significant impact on climate and contribute to global warming after CO2.

Food Toxicology focuses on the analysis and toxic effects of bioactive substances as they occur in foods. Food toxicology is a distinct field that evaluates the effects of components of the complex chemical matrix of the diet on the activities of toxic agents that may be natural endogenous products or may be introduced from contaminating organisms, or from food production, processing, and preparation.

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.

The science of toxicology has many applications. One of these relates to exposure of people to noxious or hazardous 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 sources such as pesticide residues in food as well as contact with pesticide residues of various mediums like air, water, soil, sediment, food materials, plants and animals.

Environmental health is the branch of public health that is concerned with all aspects of the natural and built environment that may affect human health. Health is the science, practice, and study of a human's well-being and their health and preventing illnesses and human injuries.
Environmental medicine is a multidisciplinary field involving medicine, environmental science, chemistry and others, overlapping with environmental pathology. It may be viewed as the medical branch of the broader field of environmental health. The scope of this field involves studying the interactions between environment and human health, and the role of the environment in causing or mediating disease.

Soil toxicology is a branch of environmental toxicology that examines 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.
