Tox Town

Tox Town, a Web-based project of the National Library of Medicine (NLM), is "an interactive guide to commonly encountered toxic substances." This highly visual Web site provides a wealth of information and related resources, such as an introduction to everyday locations where toxic chemicals might lurk, non-technical descriptions of toxins, the effect of toxins on human health, and more. Users access information by clicking on a topic of interest, which then links to comprehensive Web pages from NLM's MEDLINEplus, TOXNET, or other authoritative sources. Only recently launched in October, 2002, Tox Town does not currently provide information on all commonly encountered chemical toxins, but future plans for the site include the addition of more chemical descriptions and other features.
