Dioxins, dioxin-like PCBs and non-dioxin-like PCBs in foodstuffs: occurrence and dietary intake in The Netherlands.
To provide risk managers with a health-based guideline to prevent health effects of exposure to non-dioxin-like PCBs, the (international) derivation of a tolerable daily intake is recommended. Expand
Dietary intake and risk evaluation of polybrominated diphenyl ethers in The Netherlands.
A risk evaluation at the most sensitive endpoints of BDE 99 carried out in this paper indicates that, although the long-term exposure to BDE99 is well below the human exposure threshold level for neurodevelopmental toxicity, it may be close to that for reproductive toxicity. Expand

Calculations of dietary exposure to acrylamide.
It is demonstrated that scenario studies and probabilistic modelling of exposure are potential useful tools to evaluate the effect of processing techniques to reduce AA levels in food on AA exposure. Expand
Comparison of two models for the estimation of usual intake addressing zero consumption and non-normality
This paper compares two of these models, the Iowa State University Foods (ISUF) model and the betabinomial-normal (BBN) model, and applies them to three different datasets and shows that for two of the example datasets both models produced similar estimates of the higher percentiles of the usual intake distribution.

Cumulative risk assessment of the exposure to organophosphorus and carbamate insecticides in the Dutch diet.
The acute cumulative exposure to organophosphorus insecticides (OPs) and carbamates in the Dutch population and young children via the diet and the probabilistic approach is reported, finding that Spinach contributed most to the exposure to OPs in both age groups, followed by orange and mandarin.

Dietary exposure assessments for children in europe (the EXPOCHI project): rationale, methods and design
The EXPOCHI project includes a pan-European long-term exposure assessment of lead, chromium, selenium and food colours among children living in 13 different EU countries, and the different study methods and designs used to collect the data in the different countries necessitate an in-depth description of these different methods and a discussion about the resulting limitations.

Validation of a probabilistic model of dietary exposure to selected pesticides in Dutch infants
It was shown that the probabilistic approach can address the exposure to a pesticide via the consumption of different food products, while the point estimate only estimates the exposure through the Consumption of one product. Expand
Phthalates dietary exposure and food sources for Belgian preschool children and adults.
The intake of DEHP was the highest, followed by DiBP, and bread was the most important contributor to the DEHP intake and this may deserve further exploration, since the origin of this phthalate in bread remains unclear. Expand
Probabilistic assessment of the cumulative acute exposure to organophosphorus and carbamate insecticides in the Brazilian diet.
The highest calculated equivalent residues in tomato, which drove most of the estimated intakes at the high percentiles, were related to the illegal use of monocrotophos and triazophos in this crop. Expand
