Assssment of human exposure to benzene through foods from the Belgian market

all foods was 0.020 µg kg bw d(-1) according to a probabilistic analysis. These values are below the minimum risk level for oral chronic exposure to benzene (0.5 µg kg bw d(-1)). Manuscript versions:  ...

Neonatal thyroid-stimulating hormone concentrations in Belgium: a useful indicator for detecting mild iodine deficiency?

below 3% has been proposed as the threshold indicating iodine sufficiency. The objective of the present study was to evaluate feasibility and usefulness of nation-wide neonatal TSH concentration screening ...

Quantification of the trichothecene Verrucarin-A in environmental samples using an antibody-based spectroscopic biosensor

from dwellings. After optimization, the competitive ELISA showed a sensitivity of 7.43 ng/ml of VerA in PBS and a dynamic range below one order of magnitude. The FTIR technique improved the detection of ...

Nucleotide polymorphism-based single-tube test for robust molecular identification of all currently described Brucella species.

profiles for each of the 10 Brucella species described to date and displays discriminatory potential below the species level for some. Since the LCR methodology is insensitive to interference resulting from ...

Cadmium exposure in the population: from health risks to strategies of prevention.

and recent studies focusing on bone effects show increased risk of osteoporosis even at urinary Cd below 1 μg Cd/g creatinine. The non-smoking adult population has urinary Cd concentrations close to or ...

Estimate of intake of sulfites in the Belgian adult population.

3). The food group contributing most to the intake of sulfites was wines. The results showed that the intake of sulfites is likely to be below the ADI in Belgium. However, there are indications that ...
