Note: The word “toxic” does not mean it is necessarily harmful to humans or environment, but rather it is a product that performs a specific job for what it was intended to be used.
For example, pesticides are designed to kill certain pests, certain automotive products are used in our vehicles to make them operate more efficiently, and paint thinners are used for oil based clean up of oil based paints. Other considerations on product toxicity and human or environmental effects must be realized, such as exposure and dose.
