    Adjective order

    Hi
    I have specific concerns about the following text

    "The interesting thing about poisoning is its diversity especially since the world has become industrialized,we are increasingly being exposed with number of new hazardous chemical and biological agents and therefore It seems essential to me to have sophisticated toxicologists for the Protection of Humans and the other living creatures. "

    1-I have doubt that did I use increasingly and hazardous(hazardous new chemical) in the right place or not?
    2-Is this OK to use the in "the Protection of Humans"
    Thanks

    There are a number of punctuation mistakes, 'exposing' has no object, 'numerous number' is tautological, 'it' should not be capitalised etc.
