Endocrine disrupters can affect breast development

Studies in rats indicate that endocrine disrupters can affect breast development in humans. Their effect on breast development can however be overlooked by current methods for safety testing for endocrine disrupting effects of chemicals. These are some of the findings from a PhD project from the National Food Institute, Technical University...

When does food constitute a health risk?

Our food products contain various nutrients necessary to us humans, but some foods might contain harmful substances as well. Before sounding the alarm, the authorities therefore need assessments of how harmful a specific substance might be. The tool is science-based risk assessments in Denmark submitted to the Danish Veterinary and Food...
