Abstract
The use of epidemiologic data for risk assessment (RA) purposes has been increasing and should be expected to continue increasing in the future. In part, this trend is related to the continued controversy surrounding the use of toxicologic data for predicting human risk (Ames and Gold, 1990). It is also perhaps a reflection of improvements in the quality and suitability of epidemiologic data for risk assessment.
