Chemicals in our Life


Chemicals are the building blocks of life. They are present in us, all around us, and in every product we buy.

Human beings and animals are made of chemicals; cooking food is all about chemistry; the drugs that prevent and treat illnesses are made of chemicals; and even the sun that enables life on earth is made of chemicals. Chemicals are both naturally occurring and manmade. Life would not exist without them.

In these web pages, we try to offer a perspective on how vital chemicals are, as well as how to use them safely .
