In a field where a large number of biological effects have been reported and not replicated, it is extremely important that studies reporting effects that could impact on human health, meet certain criteria before they are be added to the database of established effects. This paper provides some of the essential criteria necessary for the development of such a scientific database which can be used to derive health risk assessments.
