Although the calculation of potential cancer risks from pesticide residues in foods involves much scientific uncertainty, estimates of risk are currently used to guide policy decisions. Since risk estimates may vary by several orders of magnitude depending on the assumptions used in the calculations, it is imperative that assumptions be based on the best available scientific data.
