The Chemistry of Health
Did you realize that chemistry plays a key role in helping us solve some of
the most serious problems facing our world today?
Chemists want to know. They want to find the building blocks of the chemical
universe — the molecules that form materials, living cells and whole organisms.
Chemists want to create. They want to make useful substances, including
some that don’t even exist in the natural world.
Many chemists are medical explorers looking for new ways to maintain and
improve our health. Others are helping to preserve our planet by developing
safe, cheap and efficient ways to make the materials we use every day.
