The potential for exposure to chemically contaminated soil is a concern for chemical industry and waste disposal site workers as well as for individuals living near the contamination site. Current assessment of potential health risks from these types of exposures relies almost exclusively on extrapolations from data derived with pure chemicals. Complex interactions with soil, however, may alter greatly the way in which a chemical subsequently interacts with the body. This study was conducted to… CONTINUE READING
