What exactly does Toxxscan do to reduce chemical health risks?
The database links chemicals to online chemical research to identigy possible health risks. Today this information is only accessible and understandable to scientists. Toxxscan is open source and available to the public.
The software is licensed to manufacturers, agencies and distributors. The tool scans all types of bar codes and making it possible to review a barcode and detect potential product health risks in real time. The results are color-coded for clarity.
The app will be developed in a future phase. The app profiles products without health risks with a thumbs up. You scan a bar code, get linked to the database and receive the color-coded results. Thumbs up indicates no known risks. A question mark links to an easy to understand research summary of the risks. Transparency about health risks increases the demand for safer products which decreases the risks.
