To the Editor. — The study by Sathyanarayana et al1 contained major methodologic errors. It is difficult to accept their conclusion that infant care products were the source of the urinary phthalates in their study, because they did not show that these products contained phthalates. Even …

Biomonitoring of urinary di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate metabolites of mother and child pairs in South Korea.
TLDR
Children had faster RMR than mothers and adults, specifically in the first step of DEHP metabolism (RMR1: MEHP hydroxylation to 5-OH-MEHP), and RMR1 of children between 1 and 24 months was the fastest.
Exposure determinants of phthalates, parabens, bisphenol A and triclosan in Swedish mothers and their children
TLDR
There were fairly good correlations of biomarker levels between the mothers and their children and the levels of high molecular weight phthalates and parabens were associated with consumption of certain foods and use of cosmetics and personal care products.
IMPACTS OF PLASTIC POLLUTION ON THE SUSTAINABILITY OF SEAFOOD VALUE CHAIN AND HUMAN HEALTH
The study evaluated the impacts of plastic pollution on the sustainability of seafood value chain. The world aquaculture production in 2016 stood at 80.0 million tons of food fish, gradually declined

Baby Care Products: Possible Sources of Infant Phthalate Exposure
TLDR
Infant exposure to lotion, powder, and shampoo were significantly associated with increased urinary concentrations of monoethyl phthalates, monomethyl phthalate, and monoisobutylphthalate and associations increased with the number of products used, and this association was strongest in young infants.
Anogenital distance in human male and female newborns: a descriptive, cross-sectional study
TLDR
The sexual dimorphism of AGD in humans comprises prima facie evidence that this outcome may respond to in utero exposure to hormonally active agents.
Decrease in Anogenital Distance among Male Infants with Prenatal Phthalate Exposure
TLDR
The hypothesis that prenatal phthalate exposure at environmental levels can adversely affect male reproductive development in humans is supported.
Estimated Daily Phthalate Exposures in a Population of Mothers of Male Infants Exhibiting Reduced Anogenital Distance
TLDR
The median and 95th percentile exposure estimates for the phthalates associated with reduced anogenital distance in the study population are substantially lower than current U.S. EPA reference doses and could be informative to any updates of the hazard assessments and risk assessments for these chemicals.
Reliability and determinants of anogenital distance and penis dimensions in male newborns from Chiapas, Mexico.
TLDR
This large study clearly shows that AGD can be measured well in newborn males, and that the measurements were more reliable than those of penis length, as does its utility as a measure of androgen action in epidemiological studies.
In utero exposure to the antiandrogen 1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis(p-chlorophenyl)ethylene (DDE) in relation to anogenital distance in male newborns from Chiapas, México.
TLDR
The authors, using two-sided tests, found no evidence that exposure in utero to DDE was related to reduced androgen action as reflected by anogenital distance or penile dimensions at birth.
