The purpose of this paper is to identify, evaluate and plan for the threat of your potential or actual toxic exposure to a specific chemical as a consumer.
The toxic chemical may be a chemical element, a chemical compound, chemical solution or a chemical mixture.
Some toxic chemicals such as air pollution, tobacco smoke and medications are mixtures of several chemical compounds, but count as single chemicals for this purpose
The paper is to be written in your own words as a persuasive document, that is, you are to convince me that there is a real threat to consumers.
Justify your opinion by citing internet or other sources and developing the logic of your case.
SECTION ONE: of the paper is to identify and justify the selection of the specific Toxic Chemical Threat you chose for your paper.
Consider exposure to:
1. Prescription medicines

What Type of Interactions May Occur With Other Chemicals
Is to be devoted to a Risk Assessment of the Threat.
The Risk Assessment of the threat is a discussion involving the combining of the probability estimate (likelihood of occurrence) and
You are to use worst case consequence scenarios to determine the degree of risk.
Justify the assumptions you use to make your evaluations.
I realize you do not have access to specific information about:
Numbers of persons who may be exposed,
Medical or emergency actions, etc.; but,
You can still make reasonably informed judgments from the information presented in class and your own observations and web searches.

Develop a plan of action for your personal safety from toxic chemicals including:
1. How you will determine what chemical threats you face and
2. How you can mitigate the personal risk you face from the specific threat cited.
Make recommendations for how you and others at risk can avoid exposure to harmful levels and/or interactions with other toxic chemicals
