Final Report - CASCADE Chemicals as contaminants in the food chain: an NOE for research, risk assessment and education)

Project ID: 506319
Funded under: FP6-FOOD

Abstract

This is the final report for the CASCADE project which brought scientists together to address gaps in the knowledge, train young researchers, and communicate useful evidence and information to those who need to know. The project has identified areas where lack of knowledge prevents accurate risk assessment. For example, it is difficult to measure people's exposure to many contaminants because the toxins are altered in the body. Exposure to, rather than quantity in food, is the crucial statistic when it comes to health risk, and it depends on your sex, age and diet.
