Dose-response function of persistent pollutants describes the cancer dose-responses of several pollutants in humans (lifetime risk due to lifetime exposure).
Potency of pollutants. Cancer slope factors (CSF) are used for cancer and Reference Dose (RfD) values are used for non-cancer endpoints. The data comes from the U.S.EPA. 
The response assessment is restricted to cancer endpoints, because it is the more sensitive endpoint.
