Epidemiology

Results of epidemiology studies are often the basis for concluding that a chemical causes certain health effects in exposed populations.  Epidemiologists at Cardno ChemRisk have designed, conducted and interpreted the results of dozens of epidemiology studies to understand the foundation of hazard assessments for numerous chemicals, and have explained the strengths and limitations of the data to clients.  For example, biomonitoring of the general population, including children, has become a popular method for identifying groups of people exposed to chemicals and at a theoretical increased health risk.  Cardno ChemRisk evaluates such data to determine potential sources of exposure and to assist clients in understanding whether the detection of a particular chemical in the body of person is a valid and true indicator of increased health risk.
