The latest addition to the prestigious CICAD series is a review on (non-radioactive) strontium and its compounds, the first draft of which was co-authored by Pete Watts, our colleague from Toxicology Advice & Consulting Ltd. A tolerable daily intake of 0.13 mg strontium/kg bw was determined for oral exposure. The CICAD, which is based on health and environmental data available in 2006, summarises data considered critical for the risk assessment process.
