In 2006, the U.S. EPA published a report entitled A Framework for Assessing Health Risks of Environmental Exposures to Children (hereafter referred to as the "Framework") describing a lifestage approach to risk assessment that includes the evaluation of existing data from a temporal perspective (i.e., the timing of both the exposure and the outcome). This article summarizes the lifestage-specific issues discussed in the Framework related to the qualitative and the quantitative hazard and dose… CONTINUE READING
