Pesticide risk assessment for food products involves combining information from consumption and concentration data sets to estimate a distribution for the pesticide intake in a human population. Using this distribution one can obtain probabilities of individuals exceeding specified levels of pesticide intake. In this article, we present a probabilistic,… (More)

Many dietary consumption variables show strong positive skewness or large proportions of zeros. Attempts to normalize such data using transformations such as powers and logarithms can be unsuccessful: this results in poor estimates of their probability distributions, and hence of the proportions of the population whose consumption is beyond recommended… (More)
