    Abstract

    In the Netherlands, the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) has successfully applied the IPRA approach to assess the human health risks of five substances in food. This method has been developed so that health risks can be described in more detail when a classical risk assessment has shown either that there is a risk or a risk cannot be excluded. In the present study, the risks of two mycotoxins (DON and T-2/HT-2), one heavy metal (cadmium), one group of pesticides (OPs), and one compound (acrylamide) which is formed during the heating of food containing high levels of starch are described
