food shed
 n.— «Noting that “(t)he premise of this method of adjusting exposure estimates is that varia tion in the pattern of distribution of the commodity across the population does not lead to significant differences in exposure for substantial portions of the general population,” the report explained that “some believe that the increased exposure of being in a “local food shed’ for one commodity evens out because the person is outside the “local food shed’ for another commodity treated with the same pesticide.» —“Keystone Group Debates Residue Reduction Factor” Pesticide & Toxic Chemical News Sept. 22, 1993.
