Exposure of the U.S. Population to Bisphenol A and 4-tertiary-Octylphenol: 2003–2004
Urine concentrations of total BPA differed by race/ethnicity, age, sex, and household income, and these first U.S. population representative concentration data for urinary BPA and tOP should help guide public health research priorities. Expand
Urinary Concentrations of Bisphenol A and 4-Nonylphenol in a Human Reference Population
This study provides the first reference range of human internal dose levels of BPA and NP in a demographically diverse human population and further research is needed to determine the best urinary biomarker(s) to assess exposure to NP. Expand
Polyfluoroalkyl Chemicals in the U.S. Population: Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2003–2004 and Comparisons with NHANES 1999–2000
The apparent reductions in concentrations of PFOS, PFOA, and PFHxS most likely are related to discontinuation in 2002 of industrial production by electrochemical fluorination ofPFOS and related perfluorooctanesulfonyl fluoride compounds. Expand
Chlorinated hydrocarbon levels in human serum: Effects of fasting and feeding
Twenty healthy adult humans had serum samples drawn on four occasions within a 24-hr period: after a 12 hr overnight fast, 4–5 hr after a high fat breakfast, at midafternoon, and the next morningExpand
Effects of prenatal and postnatal methylmercury exposure from fish consumption on neurodevelopment: outcomes at 66 months of age in the Seychelles Child Development Study.
In the population studied, consumption of a diet high in ocean fish appears to pose no threat to developmental outcomes through 66 months of age. Expand
Cord Serum Concentrations of Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) in Relation to Weight and Size at Birth
Despite relatively low cord serum concentrations, there are small negative associations between both PFOS and PFOA concentrations and birth weight and size and future studies should attempt to replicate these findings in other populations. Expand
Urinary levels of seven phthalate metabolites in the U.S. population from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 1999-2000.
We measured the urinary monoester metabolites of seven commonly used phthalates in approximately 2,540 samples collected from participants of the National Health and Nutrition Examination SurveyExpand
Urinary Concentrations of Triclosan in the U.S. Population: 2003–2004
Concentrations of triclosan appeared to be highest during the third decade of life and among people with the highest household incomes and in people in the high household income categories. Expand
Levels of seven urinary phthalate metabolites in a human reference population.
It is strongly suggested that health-risk assessments for phthalate exposure in humans should include diethyl, dibutyl, and benzyl butyl phthalates. Expand
Prenatal Exposure to PBDEs and Neurodevelopment
This epidemiologic study demonstrates neurodevelopmental effects in relation to cord blood PBDE concentrations, and indicates that children with higher concentrations of BDEs 47, 99, or 100 scored lower on tests of mental and physical development at 12–48 and 72 months. Expand
