Pesticides in the Diets of Infants and Children
National Academies, Jan 1, 1993 - Science - 386 pages

Current regulations are intended to protect the health of the general population by controlling pesticide use. This book explores whether the present regulatory approaches adequately protect infants and children, who may differ from adults in susceptibility and in dietary exposures to pesticide residues.
