Children, a susceptible population

Through its integrated approach to risk assessment, ANSES takes into account the exposures of various population groups in a cross-cutting and all-encompassing way which enables it to assess risks so as to reflect as closely as possible the realities of everyday life. Studies must be conducted on the exposure and risks specific to children, a group which is especially vulnerable to substances found in the environment, food and consumer goods. Chemicals found it toys and in foods, the nutritional make-up of foods for children, etc. are all topics on which the experts have concentrated their efforts.
