BACKGROUND Persistent organic pollutants (POPs), which are endocrine disruptors that accumulate in adipose tissue, can increase the risk of periodontal disease through the disturbance of the immune system. OBJECTIVE We examined associations of background exposure to POPs with periodontal disease in the general population. DESIGN Cross-sectional associations of concentrations of serum POPs with the prevalence of periodontal disease were investigated in 1,234 adults > or = 20 years of age in… CONTINUE READING
