User: who is know as ''the father of forensic toxiclogy and why?

Weegy: Mathieu Joseph Bonaventure Orfila, is the “Father of Forensic Toxicology,” as he published a book, a Treatise of General Toxicology. In it, he summed up everything known about poisons at the time and offered classifications. [ He had tried to demonstrate the various tests for poison detection and had found them to be highly unreliable. Assuming that toxicology was not yet a real science but could become one, he refined Rose’s method to achieve greater testing accuracy. It was Orfila who showed with tests on animals that after ingestion, arsenic gets distributed throughout the body. His fame won him a prominent position at Paris University, where he started to consult on criminal cases. He was further assisted by the work of the next prominent scientist. ]
