Abstract

The research topic concerning environment and toxicology has its unique importance. Toxicology as a subject
earlier seems confined to practice of diagnosing toxins and toxicants and treatment thereto. In its expanded
horizon it started studying the industrial toxins and their emission into the environment. With the industrial
growth and emergence of ‘Transnational Corporations’(TNC’s) countries across the globe are facing new
challenges on environmental front. Accordingly, toxicology became interested in studying adverse effects of
chemicals on living organisms with eco-system as carrier. The toxins released from industries and E-waste
are cause of Toxic Jaundice, Toxic Cough, Toxic Paralysis, Toxic Shock Syndrome, besides Toxicosis and
other diseases. International Conventions have been arranged to protect environment. Indian Constitution
imposes duty on State towards improving public health, prevention of hazards, besides duty on citizens to
improve environment. Responsibility on TNC’s as visualised by leak of poisonous Methyl isocyanate from
Union Carbide is a pointer towards this.The deliberations under the Research topic being relation between
Industry, Environment, Health Hazard and Toxicology and areas of appropriate Management thereto.
