As the world grapples with environmental challenges and the consequences of decades of industrialization, the field of chemistry is evolving to prioritize sustainability and eco-friendliness. Green chemistry, a rapidly growing discipline, aims to design products and processes that minimize environmental impact while enhancing human and ecological health. One critical aspect of this evolution is the emergence of green toxicology, which focuses on assessing the potential harmful effects of chemical substances while promoting alternatives that are safer for both human health and the environment. This article explores the innovations and advancements in green toxicology and its contributions to building a sustainable future.
Chemical substances play a pivotal role in various industries, from agriculture and manufacturing to pharmaceuticals and consumer products. However, the widespread use of chemicals has led to concerns about their potential adverse effects on human health and the environment. Traditional toxicology methods often involve animal testing and generate significant waste, contributing to the environmental burden. In response, green toxicology has emerged as a holistic approach that aligns with the principles of green chemistry, aiming to develop safer chemicals and more sustainable testing methods.Keywords
