Toxicology & its types

The scientific study of harmful impacts caused by chemicals on living things is known as toxicology. It entails keeping track of and documenting symptoms that appear after exposure to toxic chemicals. The dose of the substance is a crucial element in toxicology because it significantly affects the effects that the person will feel. In toxicology, the word "LD50" refers to the amount of a substance that will cause 50% of a test population to perish.
