The Role of Evidence in Risk Characterization
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


One of the few books to focus on the critical problem of the correct characterization of conflicting data for an adequate risk evaluation, this title comprehensively covers the different approaches in various research areas in the US and in Europe, while also considering the ethical implications of risk evaluation. In addition, special attention is paid to the sensitive topic of potential health risks through electromagnetic fields. Written by leading experts in the field, this is an indispensable resource for policy makers and professionals in health risk assessment.
