Quality Assurance and Control

toxipedia's mission is to advance human and environmental health by providing comprehensive and accurate scientific information on the hazards and risks of chemical and physical agents. toxipedia also provides information on regulation, the history of toxicology, and ethical considerations, among many other topics, and encourages site visitors to submit testimonials for its This Is My Health project.

Through research and experience, society has gained a tremendous amount of knowledge about the health and environmental effects of chemicals. Inevitably, this growth in knowledge brings specialization and individuals with specific areas of expertise.  toxipedia provides a way to "tap" into this specialized knowledge for the benefit of all.

Comprehensive and accurate information is an essential part of the learning and decision-making process. The following system is designed to provide guidance on the reliability and accuracy of the information presented on toxipedia.
