Dioxins and Dioxin-like Compounds in the Food Supply: Strategies to Decrease Exposure
Abstract: Given the paucity of scientific evidence available to the committee about current levels of DLCs in food and feeds and the impact of low-level exposure on human health, this report provides qualitative recommendations for options to reduce exposure through the food supply. Further, this report emphasizes the need for cost-effective analytical methods and research to determine the direction of future actions to further reduce DLC exposure through pathways leading to human foods.
