Chemical exposure

On a daily basis we are exposed to numerous chemical substances from many different sources. When exposed to a mixture of numerous chemicals simultaneously, the mixture can have a significant negative effect even at low exposure levels. The National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark researches the large number of potentially harmful chemical substances and assesses the consequences in regards to food safety with particular focus on endocrine disruptors, cocktail effects and the development of computer models that can predict the harmful effects.
