Textile dyes on human health

by Bernardita Solis 
The Planetary Boundaries concept identifies nine global priorities relating to human-induced changes to the environment. These nine processes and systems regulate the stability and resilience of the Earth System — the interactions of land, ocean, atmosphere and life that together provide conditions upon which our societies depend.
This research will focus on textile dyes, particularly synthetic ones ,that pose significant toxicological risks to human health through various exposure pathways. The adverse effects of these dyes are a result of their chemical properties and the ways they interact with biological systems.
