Food & Nutritional Toxicology

Nutritional toxicology is related to but is not synonymous with food toxicology. Food toxicology describes toxicants or toxins found in foods. Nutritional toxicology can refer to how the diet or components of the diet prevent against the adverse effects of toxicants or toxins. Every drug is a poison when taken in the higher dose. In a similar manner nutrient taken in higher doses can cause Nutrition toxicology. In general, toxicologists deal with the exogenous compounds (i.e. xenobiotic or foreign compounds) whereas Food and Nutritional Toxicologists deal with toxicants in food, the health effects of high nutrient intakes, and the interactions between toxicants and nutrients.
