EHP March 2009

The March 2009 issue of Environmental Health Perspectives ( is now available on-line, highlighting issues surrounding regulation of hazardous substances, non-cancer toxicity assessment, mobile phones and cancer, pesticide mixtures, proteosome inhibition by organotins and children's exposure to dust lead.

  • Outside Looking In: Understanding the Role of Science in Regulation - Exploring the inconsistencies of regulation, even when reviewers use the same evidence to make their decisions
  • Building on Success: Assessment Categories for Experimental Noncancer End Points - Previewing new National Toxicology Program standardized criteria for assessing toxicity to the immune system, reproductive system and developing organism
  • Mobile Phones and Cancer - Weighing the issues surrounding risk assessment of the ubiquitous cell phone's impact on health and calling for more information on long-term use
  • Pesticide Mixtures Produce Synergistic Toxicity - Examining evidence that when pesticides combine, the risk to aquatic species is greater than previously thought
  • The Proteasome Is a Molecular Target of Organotins - Characterizing the mechanisms and downstream events of exposure to compounds used in antifouling boat paints, polyvinyl chloride stabilizers, agricultural pesticides and industrial catalysts
  • Dust Lead in Homes of U.S. Children - Identifying factors associated with childhood residential dust lead exposure in homes that meet Federal standards but still may put children at risk
  • Children's Blood Lead Levels and Dust Lead - Modeling blood lead levels based on dust lead levels on floors in homes and concluding that reducing levels below Federal standards would protect more children
