Focuses on flaws in the actual approaches of exposure to a chemical of recipient organisms. Demonstrates the excessive use of arguments based on adverse effects & underlines the necessity to take adaptive effects seriously. Regulators are invited to rethink their inclination to the ‘When in doubt, keep it out’ precautionary approach, with results in counter-productive & costly regulations. It is necessary to include hormesis, in the form of a TIE (toxicological insignificant exposure level) related to the concentration, as a regulatory translation of adaptive effects.  Includes the advice to EPA not to follow the ‘witch hunt of synthetic chemicals’ as embodied in the EU REACH program. Includes 3 commentaries plus a response by the authors. Illus.
