Abstract

This chapter first discusses the various aspects of human biomonitoring that are important to be able to use human data in a forensic context. Important aspects include: (1) toxicokinetics-absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination; (2) sensitive analytical chemistry methods; (3) characterizing normal background population levels such as in the US National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals as well as in other countries; (4) development of reference values and biomonitoring equivalents; and (5) environmental exposure pathways, such as food, soil, dust, clay, and beef. Various human exposures are then discussed related to accidental exposures, poisonings, food contamination incidents, and occupational exposures such as e-waste and various manufacturing processes.
