    The TD50 is the toxic dose for 50 percent of the animals tested. The larger the TD the more poison it takes to produce signs of toxicity. The toxic dose does not give any information about the lethal dose because toxic effects (for example, nausea and vomiting) may not be directly related to the way that the chemical causes death.

When the TSCA was put into place, all existing chemicals were considered to be safe for use and subsequently grandfathered in. Its Enacted by: the 94th United States Congress.   Officials with the White House and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency tried to block a critical report on a class of toxic chemicals after a White House aide warned that a "public relations nightmare" would follow after its release, according to emails reported by POLITICO.
