**Noncancer and cancer comparison values for off-site organic contaminants are based on ingestion of soil and homegrown vegetables; noncancer and cancer comparison values for off-site inorganic contaminants are based on ingestion of soil.
Noncancer comparison values for on-site contaminants are determined for a 21 kilogram child who ingests 200 milligrams of soil per day, 2 days per week for 3 months per year. Cancer comparison values for on-site contaminants are determined for a 70 kilogram adult who ingests 100 milligrams of soil per day, 2 days per week for 3 months per year.
