People incur a certain amount of risk every day. Whether they drive a car, cross a street, use a knife, or varnish a piece of furniture, they put themselves in a potentially risky situation. Risk is defined as the probability of injury, disease, or death under specific circumstances. All human activities carry some degree of risk. Environmental risk is the risk associated with the likelihood or probability that a given chemical exposure or series of exposures may damage human health. Environmental risk takes two factors into account: the amount of a chemical present and its relation to the amount the exposed person can tolerate. Each person reacts to risk situations differently, both physically and mentally.
