Summary

The objective of this course is to clarify the current strategies in toxicological assessment of health risks associated with dietary exposure to various hazardous chemicals that may occur in food chains such as environmental contaminants, natural toxins and other potentially toxic compounds originated during foods production and processing. In addition to explanation of basic concepts, attention is paid to concrete examples of risks assessment and communication in case of various global crises.
