ATSDR’s Toxic Substances Portal where the Toxicological Profiles – or ToxProfiles™ – are offered

For communities, physicians, scientists and environmental health professionals, ATSDR’s Toxicological Profiles are an important source of information about toxic chemicals and health effects.

Robin Shapiro has been an academic librarian at Portland Community College in Oregon since 1997. She enjoys helping students learn how to use resources such as ATSDR’s Toxic Substances Portal where the Toxicological Profiles – or ToxProfiles™ – are offered.

“The Toxic Substances Portal allows students to quickly gain an understanding of the effects of a wide range of substances,” Shapiro says. “It’s reliable, which is essential for health information sources.”

ATSDR’s ToxProfiles™ provide detailed information about possible health effects from exposure to hazardous substances found at National Priorities List sites. Federal agency employees and doctors use the ToxProfiles™ to make decisions about cleaning up sites, respond to emergencies and treat patients exposed to chemicals.
