Project description

the aim of the research project is to: 1. develop an integrated simulation model to assess for the Flemish population the exposure to environmental contaminats through various exposure pathways (inhalation of air, ingestion of soil/house dust, ingestion of food, non-environmental realted pathways. 2. evaluate the model on the basis of a specific case study (cadmium, dioxins or PCBs).
