Poisons are chemicals that produce illness or death when taken in very small quantities. Legally, a poison is defined as a chemical that has an LD50 of 50 milligrams, or less, per kilogram of body weight. An LD50 is the quantity of chemical administered in one dose that is lethal for 50 percent of test animals within a 14-day period. LD means lethal dose and the subscript 50 refers to the percentage of the animals for which the dose was lethal. Fifty mg/kg is equal to approximately three-fourths of a teaspoon for an average adult and about one-eighth of a teaspoon for an average 2-year-old child.

While in the ideal world this hazard would surely be eliminated, the reality might be that the factory provides employment for the community, and to control its emissions would undermine its viability. Thus there is a trade-off to be made between environmental health and other outcomes related to economic welfare, which in turn have implications for employment, housing, diet and health itself.
