There are only 2 substances that make up our universe: Matter and Energy.
Chemistry is largely about matter but uses the science of energy to understand it.
Some of the matter that makes up chemistry is necessary for life and some of it will destroy life. Some of the many different types of matter is necessary for life but too much will also destroy life. Water is one Oxygen is another.
What makes up the difference between how much will destroy a life form and how much will help the life form to remain alive is seen largely through the process of evolution. A fish must be in an almost 100% water environment. We humans need the gaseous environment we call air.
The Dangers to Life that we are producing come largely from chemical concentrations that are not found in nature at the concentrations that we are being exposed too. A few examples are Ethyl Alcohol (the drug that is in wine, beer and liquors) and MSG (monosodium glutamate) that is found in nature mainly in small concentrations in rotting seaweed. Both are produced as waste products from bacteria whereas when the concentrations become too high - the waste chemicals of, Alcohol and MSG, will kill the bacteria that are creating them. Just as we cannot live our waste, neither can other life forms live in their waste. Other examples of dangerous waste products are labelled as Pollution, Sewage etc.
More on this later as too much information becomes disinformation.
Next : Te Science of Combination of (inorganic )Chemicals. - it is actually the same process of balancing used by the BaGua (Yi Jing)EG: -1 is balanced with +1 numbers, -3 is balanced with +3 etc - up to 8...
