Neurobehavioural effects of developmental toxicity
Male reproductive health and environmental xenoestrogens.
The growing number of reports demonstrating that common environmental contaminants and natural factors possess estrogenic activity presents the working hypothesis that the adverse trends in male reproductive health may be, at least in part, associated with exposure to estrogenic or other hormonally active environmental chemicals during fetal and childhood development.

The present data support that P-MDA may be a potential biomarker for oxidative stress on a group basis, and within-subject and day-to-day variations of P- MDA indicated that the potential of P -MDA as a biomarkers for individuals is questionable.
Serum vaccine antibody concentrations in children exposed to perfluorinated compounds.
Elevated exposures to PFCs were associated with reduced humoral immune response to routine childhood immunizations in children aged 5 and 7 years.
Evidence on the Human Health Effects of Low-Level Methylmercury Exposure
A synthesis of the current knowledge on the human health effects of low-level MeHg exposure to provide a basis for future research efforts, risk assessment, and exposure remediation policies worldwide is undertaken.

The number of civilian airports with personnel trained in the use of aqueous film-forming foams is significantly associated with the detection of PFASs above the minimal reporting level, and drinking water supplies for 6 million U.S. residents exceed US EPA's lifetime health advisory for PFOS and PFOA.
Cognitive performance of children prenatally exposed to "safe" levels of methylmercury.
Subtle effects on brain function seem to be detectable at prenatal methylmercury exposure levels currently considered to be safe, within a cohort of 1022 consecutive singleton births in the Faroe Islands.
Neurobehavioral deficits associated with PCB in 7-year-old children prenatally exposed to seafood neurotoxicants.
