The goal of the ChildSpecific Exposure Factors Handbook is to consolidate all children's exposure factors data into one document. The document provides a summary of the available and uptodate statistical data on various factors assessing children's exposures. These factors include drinking water consumption; soil ingestion; inhalation rates; dermal factors including skin area and soil adherence factors; consumption of fruits, vegetables, fish, meats, dairy products, homegrown foods, and breast milk; activity patterns; body weight; consumer products, and life expectancy.
