Abstract
Pesticides are active substances with potentially adverse effects on human health, and therefore great effort is addressed to study the relation between their widespread use and human exposure. Human biomonitoring (HBM) is the most widely used and powerful tool to evaluate the exposure of the population to these substances. However, novel approaches are needed in order to give additional information on exposure at population level and overcome the limitations of HBM studies. A novel approach, called Wastewater-Based Epidemiology (WBE), was proposed as an alternative “biomonitoring tool” with the aim to assess the population exposure to organophosphates, triazine...
