The National Library of Medicine’s Tox Town website uses color, graphics, sounds and animation to make learning about the environment more interesting. Visit Tox Town to discover the connection between chemicals, the environment, and health. Divided into neighborhoods, the website explores various environments.
From the NLM Technical Bulletin: The City neighborhood has recently been updated with a new photorealistic look. It, as well as the Town and Southwest scenes, is now in HTML 5. Location and chemical information remains the same, but the new graphics allow users to better identify real-life city locations.
Tox Town can be accessed on a variety of personal electronic devices, including iPads, iPad minis, and other tablets. Regardless of where you live, we hope you’ll visit the updated Tox Town City neighborhood and learn about potential environmental health risks.
