The assessment of past exposure is a prerequisite to all epidemiological studies on drinking water and cancer. In this study the past exposure assessment of drinking water carcinogenicity was done in terms of the drinking water mutagenicity estimated from historical water parameters and compared with the methods used previously in past exposure assessments in studies on drinking water and cancer. The method was applied in 56 municipalities in Finland. The comparison of different methods in past… CONTINUE READING
