Regulating pesticides in food : the Delaney paradox by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concern about health effects from exposure to pesticides in foods is growing as scientists learn more about the toxic properties of pesticides.

This volume examines the impacts of the Delaney Clause on agricultural innovation and on the public's dietary exposure to potentially carcinogenic pesticide residues. Four regulatory scenarios are described to illustrate the effects of varying approaches to managing oncogenic pesticide residues in food
