Researchers of the area of Food Toxicology have just published an article focused on analyzing the health risks associated to the dietary intake of several food processing contaminants (PFCs). This study was aimed at determining the levels of acrylamide, furans, monochloropropanediols (MCPDs) and glycidyl esters (GEs)) in foodstuffs purchased in Catalonia and assessing the human exposure for different population groups.

As Editor-in-Chief of Food and Chemical Toxicology, Prof. José L. Domingo has just published a new call for papers on the potential toxic effects of COVID-19 vaccines. Food and Chemical Toxicology encourages the researchers to submit the results of their investigations on this topic in order to clarify which are the toxicological risks - if any - of the current vaccines. Submissions can be done through the Editorial Manager link (https://www.editorialmanager.com/fct/default.aspx).
