Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are widely used commercial flame retardants that are accumulating in the environment. PBDEs may interfere with the development of key biological systems, thus leaving children vulnerable to functional impairments in adulthood. There is a growing literature of animal studies that show subtle changes in motor and cognitive function following acute or repeated perinatal exposure to PBDEs. 2,2',4,4'-Brominated diphenyl ether (BDE 47), a very stable PBDE… CONTINUE READING
