  1. Environmental health risks of toxic waste site exposures - an epidemiological perspective.

    Article - En anglais

    A general account is given of the problems of assessing the impact of human exposure to toxic waste sites, including the identification of truly exposed populations and of exposure pathways.

    Epidemiological studies of populations at risk are briefly reviewed and methodological problems summarised.

    These include the use of relatively weak study designs, inadequate exposure assessment and recall biases associated with symptom reporting among anxious residents living in the vicinity of waste sites.
