It is extremely rare that the research into the elements of risk assessment (dietary exposure and toxicity are reported together. This book not only combines these, but also positions them within the broader picture, which includes environmental fate of pesticides, identification of the exact nature of the residues and the international standards for acceptable levels of food pesticide residues in food and water.
  • The subjects covered reflect the increasing concerns over food safety and risks to humans
  • It takes an international approach with contributors from the EU, US and Australia.
