Toxicology is frequently done by animal testing.  I understand that this is
the basis for many rather common toxicology  number settings  as the
"allowable" levels for pesticides, carbon monoxide emissions, mercury
contamination, etc.  How good are these basis numbers?   The
pharmaceutical industry has known for many years that 92+% of medications
developed through animal testing do not work in people.  Indeed some of them
are deadly.  With that in mind, what makes anyone think that this is any
better basis in toxicology?

Best Wishes
