Description
 
Biomonitoring (BM), which measures chemicals in people's tissues or body fluids, has shown that the U.S. population is  exposed to chemicals used in everyday products. Some of these have the potential to cause cancer or birth defects. Children may be more vulnerable to harm from these chemicals than adults. The EPA is authorized under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to control chemicals that pose unreasonable health risks. This report reviews the: (1) extent to which EPA incorporates info. from BM studies into its assessments of chemicals; (2) steps that EPA has taken to improve the usefulness of BM data; and (3) extent to which EPA has the authority under TSCA to require chemical co. to develop and submit BM data to EPA.
