Public Consultation on the Draft Scientific Opinion of The PPR Panel on The Follow-up of The Findings of The External Scientific Report “Literature Review of Epidemiological Studies Linking Exposure to Pesticides and Health Effects”

EFSA’s Pesticides Unit has launched an open consultation on the follow-up of the findings of the External Scientific Report “Literature review of epidemiological studies linking exposure to pesticides and health effects”. The methodological limitations affecting the quality of epidemiological studies on pesticides have been assessed in the document and specific recommendations on how to improve them. In addition, this document proposes a methodology for the integration of epidemiological evidence with data from experimental toxicology to delineate the potential contributions of epidemiological studies that complement classical toxicological studies conducted in laboratory animal species in the area of pesticide risk assessment.
