What is dose response? The basics

What's is dose response, and what's it got to do with hazard and health risk? This is the first of a series of Risk Bites videos on understanding what dose response is, and why it's useful! This is part of a series of Risk Bites videos that tackle dose response and response models. This week's Ri
