Abstract/Contents:Defines acute toxicity as "poisoning resulting from a single exposure to a large dose of a chemical," and chemical toxicity as "poisoning from repeated low doses over a prolonged period of time." Explains that it is toxicity and exposure that render a chemical hazardous, cautioning that "toxic chemicals are not necessarily dangerous in their use, but rather in their misuse."
Note:"The following was taken from an article in Hunterdon Observer, written by Jeff Rugg entitled, 'Nontoxic use of pesticides requires know-how'"
