Superfund Research Program
NIEHS Superfund Research Program (SRP)-funded grantees organized a workshop to discusses ways to reduce human exposure to toxic elements in food.
Sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) the event focused on several themes: toxic element uptake and accumulation in plants; metal-soil interactions and cleanup; and food production and processing.
The organizers, Om Parkash Dhankher, Ph.D. and Jason C. White, Ph.D., also published a report to share key findings from the workshop and called for practical, cost-effective, and sustainable approaches to soil management.
