Call for Abstracts
and RISK ASSESSMENT
June 9 - 12, 1996
Westin La Paloma Resort
Tucson, Arizona, USA
The conference will focus on the modulation of chemical toxicity and risk
assessment from a variety of factors including nutrition and the presence
of toxicants in food. A major objective will be to assess the role that
improved nutrition may have on minimizing the impact of toxic chemicals
and the role that nutritional deficiencies may have on altering toxicity.
Manipulation of nutritional factors may prove to be an inexpensive means
to reduce human risk from hazardous substances in the environment. Another
objective will be to discuss the impact that dietary factors may have on
established risk assessment procedures.
The conference theme Modulation of Chemical Toxicity and Risk Assessment
will be explored in five sessions:
Natural Toxicants in Food
Xenobiotic Toxicants in Food
Nutritional Status and Toxicity
Dietary Modification and Toxicity
Dietary Factors and Risk Assessment Policy
The conference will feature oral and poster presentations of scientific
studies concerned with: hazardous wastes, pesticides, foods, beverages,
feeds, fertilizers, soil, water, human and animal drugs and residues, and
other related areas. Contributed abstracts will be presented in poster
