Soil ingestion is an important pathway of exposure for many nonvolatile contaminants for man and in particular for children. A fraction of the ingested contaminant may not dissociate from the soil particles during digestion in the gastrointestinal tract, and is thus not available for transport across the intestinal epithelium. In order to estimate the contaminant fraction that is mobilized from soil, i.e., the bioaccessible fraction, several in vitro digestion models have been developed. The… CONTINUE READING
