The Biology Project: Chemicals and Human Health


This section of the University of Arizona's Biology Project provides background information on toxic materials and the body's responses. There are interactive tutorials with assessment questions and an activity in which students can actually acquire and analyze real data on the effects of second-hand smoke. Topics include Kidneys and Metals, General Toxicology, and Lung Toxicology. There are annotated links to several other outstanding resources.
