During the Society of Toxicology (SOT) annual scientific meeting in March 2019, Legal Drugs Podcast's host, Angela Stoyanovitch, met today's special guest, Dr. Raymond Singer. After learning Ray's unique practice in forensic neuropsychology and neurotoxicology as an international and national testimony expert, Angela jumped on the opportunity to interview him inside the SOT booth.
For nearly four decades, Ray has reported his findings around neurotoxicity (toxicity in the brain) as an expert witness including cases up to the United States Supreme Court. Ray's passion for justice and public health are evident in his life's work.
As Ray explains his unique background and drive for public, legal, social and ethical responsibility, we may credit his work which gave rise to the establishment of toxicologists as expert witnesses in the judicial system. Ray has been leading the way ever since the day he stood up as a front liner on neurotoxicity associated with Agent Orange, an herbicide and defoliant chemical used during the Vietnam War (1961-1971.)
Ray has studied human illnesses from neurotoxicants (a neurotoxicant is a substance capable of causing adverse effects in the central and peripheral nervous system as well as the sense organs) to bring more awareness to these types of illnesses.
Whether known or unknown, any exposure or consumption of a substance such as a legal drug or environmental pollutant that results in a brain injury, for example, it is Ray's mission to shine a light on the objective truth so justice can be served.
