HEALTH EFFECTS ASSESSMENT FOR ASBESTOS
U.S. EPA. HEALTH EFFECTS ASSESSMENT FOR ASBESTOS. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C., EPA/540/1-86/049 (NTIS PB86134608).
The document represents a brief, quantitatively oriented scientific summary of health effects data. It was developed by the Environmental Criteria and Assessment Office to assist the Office of Emergency and Remedial Response in establishing chemical-specific health-related goals of remedial actions. If applicable, chemical-specific subchronic and chronic toxicity interim acceptable intakes are determined for systemic toxicants, or q(sub 1)* values are determined for carcinogens for both oral and inhalation routes. Sufficient data are not available at this time on asbestos to determine either acceptable intakes or q(sub 1)*s.
