APPENDIX B

Calculations for Chemicals that do not cause cancer:

Noncancer Comparison Value = U.S.EPA Reference Dose x Body Weight
                            ____________________________________

                                              Intake Rate

Body Weight = The amount a person weights. Generally 70 kilograms is used for an adult and 10-15 kilograms for a child.

Intake Rate = The amount of water or soil a person would drink or eat.

Cancer Risk Guide

Cancer Risk Guide = Body Weight x Risk Factor
              ____________________________

          Intake Rate x Cancer Slope Factor


Body Weight = The amount a person weights. Generally 70 kilograms is used for an adult body weight.

Risk Factor = Either one additional cancer in one person in 10,000 people, one person in 100,000 people or one person in 1,000,000 people.

Intake Rate = The amount of water or soil a person would drink or eat.

Cancer Slope Factor = It is a U.S.EPA number which represents the cancer potential of a chemical. Each chemical has its own slope factor.
