System of a down toxicity

Today we have at our disposal a wide arsenal of drugs with antineoplastic activity. The following pages describe the main side effects of the classical chemotherapeutics as well as the new drugs directed against molecular targets.

Chemotherapy drugs act on cancer cells, which are derived from healthy cells and share metabolic and functional processes with them, so that any drug that acts on them will also act to a greater or lesser degree on all the other cells of the organism. This is why chemotherapy treatments have a series of more or less serious effects on the rest of the organism, known as toxic or secondary effects. The cells most affected by the cytotoxic effect of chemotherapy are those that share characteristics with tumor cells, especially high-speed cell multiplication, such as those of hair follicles, bone marrow, the digestive tract and the reproductive system.

Toxic people are harmful to the mental well-being of their fellow human beings.  They can be found at work, in our social circle or even in the family.  They prevent us from feeling happy and undermine any self-confidence.

If you think that someone in your environment may be interfering negatively in your life, read the following 7 traits. They will help you identify a toxic person and be able to make a decision about their influence in your daily life.

1. They produce negative emotions in others.  This is one of the central characteristics. When you have a conversation with them, everything revolves around negative stressful events. When you say goodbye, you notice how your energy level has dropped and you feel drained. Although there are positive moments, the overall tone is bad.

3. Continuous complaining.  They are especially negative. The focus of their attention always goes to complaining. Nothing is ever to their liking. It doesn’t matter if it’s a relationship or a meal in a restaurant: nothing will ever live up to their expectations.

toxicity rae

No chemical substance can be considered non-toxic, since any substance (even water or oxygen) is capable of producing a toxic effect if a sufficient dose is administered. This is represented in Paracelsus’ famous phrase «only the dose makes the poison». All substances possess toxicity; however, some are more toxic than others. Intoxication is the state of a living being in which it is under the harmful effects of a toxicant.

The danger of working with toxic substances derives mainly from the lack of knowledge that workers may have of the health risks of many chemical substances. The most harmful chemicals handled by workers are of very varied composition and have very different effects on health.

All workers who use toxic substances in the workplace are required to wear appropriate personal protective equipment, especially gloves, masks and respirators.
