The objective of the program: Investigating the carcinogenic potential of some chemical contaminants in the Bucharest-Ilfov area and establishing the correlations between them and the incidence of cancer.
Investigating the degree of contamination with carcinogenic contaminants in correlation with the incidence of cancers in the studied areas;
Investigation of the types of potential carcinogenic contaminants from the environment (water and soil) and those from the agricultural production;
Identification of the agro-food production transmission vectors of potentially carcinogenic contaminants in food; surveillance and monitoring of contaminants with potential carcinogen in some agri-food products;
Inventory of studies, reports, research on good practices to minimize the accumulation of potentially carcinogenic contaminants in agri-food products; developing good practice guides.
