The presence of overwhelming difficulties in assessing the extent or even the presence of a causal association between modern environmental exposures and disease has promoted the use of more complex models in the design of human biomonitoring studies. The concatenation of environmental exposure, genetic effect and individual susceptibility is a key issue in the assessment of risks for populations exposed to environmental pollutants. The use of a biological event laying in the causal pathway… CONTINUE READING
