Appendix 2

Notes on the tables:

1

1 ng = one millionth of 1 mg.

2

Estimated dietary exposures are based on food consumption data from the 1995 National Nutrition Survey.

3

Pesticides screened for but not detected are included in Appendix 4.

4

Deltamethrin, hexaconazole and parathion were detected but they have not been included in either Table A5 or Table A7 because their calculated exposure in all diets was less than 0.01 ng/kg body weight and less than 0.01% of their respective ADIs.
