Sample text

After completing our tour of toxicology and risk assessment we shall return, in Chapter 11, to the subject of risk management, and discuss these various requirements. So, with this larger social context in mind, we return to the technical discussion, and move from exposure to what is a principal determinant of risk: the dose. 2 From exposure to dose To determine whether and to what extent humans may be harmed (suffer toxicity) from a chemical exposure, it is necessary to know the dose created by the exposure.

Exposure creates the dose. In our example, people are exposed to TCE through the medium of their drinking water, and receive a dose of TCE by the oral route. Calculating (or, more correctly, estimating) dose requires knowledge of the weight of the chemical getting into the body by each route. As in the account just given of exposure to a chemical in drinking water, the amount of chemical in a specified volume of water (mg/l) times the amount of that water consumed by a person each day (l/day) gave the weight of chemical taken into the body each day.

Even “side-stream” and exhaled smoke contain hundreds of chemicals. Food, air, water, consumer products, cosmetics, pesticides, medicines, building materials, clothing, fuels, tobacco products, materials encountered on the job, and unwanted contaminants of all of these – these are the principal sources of the thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands of known and unknown chemicals, natural and industrial, that people ingest, inhale, absorb through their skin, and (for medicines) take into their bodies in other ways.
