Summary of "Environmental mixtures and children's health: identifying appropriate statistical approaches."

Biomonitoring studies have shown that children are constantly exposed to complex patterns of chemical and nonchemical exposures.

We discuss advantages over traditional methods, limitations and appropriateness of the context.
