Children do not like arsenic in their food

Letizia Da Sacco and Andrea Masotti

In the last Exposure Science Digest, Landrigan and Goldman emphasized the importance of the first US environmental statute (the 1996 Food Quality Protection Act) in regulating the use of pesticides in order to protect children from their exposure.1 Although the FQPA and the past inspiring report from the National Academy of Science (NAS) focused on infants and children exposure to pesticides, the four principles characterizing children's vulnerability may concern the exposure to other xenobiotics as well. For example, the NAS-guiding principles should be kept in mind especially in those countries where the maximum tolerable limit for a carcinogenic xenobiotic, such as inorganic arsenic (iAs), is not regulated by law.
