Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,


Today, humans are exposed to environmental contaminants—deposited in environmental matrices due to different emission sources—through multiple pathways. There is a real risk that they can enter the food chain and may harm human health. Although reducing the emission of such contaminants is and will always be the goal, we have to find ways to cope with their presence in our environment, making sure to protect the aquatic as well as terrestrial food chain. Numerous scientists are working to understand the mechanisms that link these compounds more or less strongly to environmental issues. Others are studying the mechanisms that regulate their uptake by organisms. Some research teams are trying determine means to reduce or completely avoid such uptake by modulation of their bioavailability via different chemical or physical techniques.

I would like to invite you to contribute your work to this Special Issue, with the aim of compiling current knowledge about this topic.
