In Vivo Investigation of Dietary Exposure to 5 Pesticides


The report presents data from toxicity studies in rats. The rats were exposed through the diet to a combination of 5 pesticides often found as residues in food in Denmark. The conclusion of the studies was that effects are seen at lower dose levels when rats are exposed to the five pesticides in combination than when the rats are exposed to the individual pesticides. Such a combined effect shows that risk assessment of health effects of residues of pesticides is complicated.
