Low Dose Effects

Low Dose Effects: Messages and Demands

04. September 2012 | Position

Long version of this document

The VCI states its position on „low dose effects“ – on the occasion of the international workshop “Low Dose Effects and Non-Monotonic Dose Responses for Endocrine Active Chemicals”.

For some years, the scientific community has been giving much attention to the thesis of low dose effects. Data on this issue have been gathered and interpreted in numerous research projects. Should this thesis be confirmed, ensuing discussion of the consequences might necessitate profound changes in chemicals assessment. However, to date there is no objective and scientific proof of this thesis.
