PAN Europe reports on EFSA
A new Pesticide Action Network (PAN) Europe report reveals that 10 out of 13 members of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) working group on TTC (Threshold of Toxicological Concern, a method to decide on the health impacts of chemicals), have a conflict of interest. The industry has been a strong proponent of the TTC approach. Read PAN-Europe’s Press Release and download their full report here.
Hans Muilerman of PAN-Europe states “TTC does not take account of independent scientific findings of harm at lower doses and cannot protect vulnerable groups like children.” Further information here.
