||Evidence-based toxicology: "sound science" in new disguise
||4th quarter 2008, Vol.14, No.4, p.299-306. 33 ref.
||Evidence-based_toxicology.pdf [in English]
||The "evidence-based toxicology" departs radically from state-of-the-art toxicology by claiming that risks for humans can only be determined on the basis of human evidence. Just like the previous proposal of "sound science," "evidence-based toxicology" poses a heavy burden of proof on any effort to control exposures in order to reduce health risks to those exposed. The alleged connection between "evidence-based toxicology" and evidence-based medicine is misconceived, since the strict criteria for use of scientific data in evidence-based medicine concerns proof of therapeutic effects, while in "evidence-based toxicology" these criteria are applied to proof of harmful effects.
