SCI 210 Toxin or Not

3 hours 

This course introduces students to the basic principles of how toxins may affect their health and the application in their daily lives. The study of toxins and health will involve studying a wide range of potential poisons that may affect individuals and communities often times without awareness of the harm that is being done. This may range from OTC (Over the Counter) drugs, regulated pharmaceuticals, drugs of abuse, pesticides, and other chemicals found in products and released into the environment, and hormone therapy and medicinal herbs. Students will learn how to apply these concepts through methods of inquiry and a case study format.
