We are surrounded by a chemical world, we are made of chemicals, we breathe, ingest and excrete chemical substances. Chemistry makes up our foundations, our atmosphere and our world. Chemical energy changes forms from one to another every second of everyday in every country, and inside everyone.
Chemistry is still taught in schools, as an elective, when everybody is affected by it. A basic understanding of chemistry can save your life, prevent accidents and aid your health.
Humans throughout history have endeavoured to alter their own chemistry. Through health, recreation, religious and social practices.
The exploration of chemical diversity continues in a multitude of environments. The way we experience the world through sensations can be described as just a series of chemical reactions.
Chemistry is at the heart of life. Often it's all in the balance.
