Example text

Furthermore, when two or more chemicals share a common mechanism of toxicity, then the cumulative dose from exposure to these chemicals must be estimated. In this paper a three-tier assessment approach is proposed. Tier 1 uses default assumptions and single point (deterministic) estimates of exposure, hazard and risk employing procedures routinely used by E P A and the crop protection industry (2). In Tier 2, combinations of deterministic and probabilistic (distributional) data are used, while Tier 3 assessments rely predominantly on distributional data.

As with the aggregate exposure estimates, the cumulative exposure of an individual to multichemical pesticide residues may be based on the estimated dose occurring on a single day or on the average daily dose calculated over various durations of time up to and including the average lifetime daily dose. Cumulative exposure estimates can be represented either deterministically or probabilistically. Acceptable Daily Dose: Defined as the mg/kg/day dose that is generally regarded as safe. The acceptable daily dose may be established for toxicity endpoints derived from acute, subchronic or chronic toxicity studies.

At that time, the Clinton Administration's Clean Water Initiative (5) proposed legislation that would have led to the study and phaseout of chlorine because of a concern that persistent chlorinated chemicals could adversely affect human health, particularly the endocrine system. Although that bill did not pass, other laws have been enacted that address the environmental endocrine issue. ; ACS Symposium Series; American Chemical Society: Washington, DC, 1999. ch004 Food Quality Protection Act of 1996 (FQPA) and the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1996 (SDWA) each include provisions requiring the screening of chemicals for estrogenic activity and allowing the study of other hormonal activity for pesticides, inert ingredients in pesticides, and other environmental chemicals.
