The course will be divided into two subsequent sections. The first (shorter) one will introduce basic toxicological characteristics of typical environmental pollutants with special emphasize to parameters applied within quantification of their carcinogenic as well as non-carcinogenic effects. The second section will then be directed to principles of risk calculation for selected exposition pathways and their illustrative examples.
