Dr. Dingsheng Li, an assistant professor of environmental health, at University of Nevada, Reno School of Community Health Sciences, recently published an article entitled “Health Risks of Chemicals in Consumer Products: A Review” in Environmental International. The article discusses the dominant patterns of exposures and lingering health risks related to chemicals found in many consumer products. Dr. Li and co-author examined 342 articles covering 202 chemicals to discern the functional uses, product applications, exposure routes, exposure pathways, toxicity endpoints, and their interactions. The article lists many consistencies found in the literature and makes many more connections in the findings.
In addition to this article, Dr. Li’s research focuses primarily on exposure assessment, risk assessment, life cycle assessment and Physiologically Based Pharmacokinetic Modeling.Friday Letter Submission
