Health Canada seeks comments (by 30 August) on its draft assessment of aluminium in drinking water. A tolerable daily intake (TDI) of 0.30 mg/kg bw was calculated based on a no-observed-adverse-effect level (NOAEL) of 30 mg Al/kg bw/day identified in a neurodevelopmental study (with aluminium citrate) in rats. From the TDI, a health-based value (HBV) in drinking water of 2.9 mg/L was proposed.
