Abstract :

Industrial development has provided significant impact on the environment due to inappropriate arrangement and processing of industrial waste. The burden of the environment becomes heavier and results in environmental imbalance. One of the problems is the exposure of chemical substances, which is increasingly used for industry. Therefore, controlling effort is needed to prevent more severe damage resulting from these substances. In this relation, environmental toxicology, a science on the adverse effect of environmentally-distributed chemical substances on biological system, is beneficial to predict outcomes related with toxic hazards of chemical substances in human beings and environment. This science has a wide scope, either in medicine, food industries, farming, or chemical industries. It is also divided into several subdisciplines, such as forensic toxicology and occupational toxicology. This discipline should be able to find solution for appropriately controlling the exposure of chemical substances. Since it is still recognized by a small fraction of the society, its socialization becomes imperative. Toxicology should be introduced to students ranging from those at elementary level of education to those who go to universities through their curriculum of education.
