Digestive tract absorption of PCDD/Fs, PCBs, and HCB in humans: mass balances and mechanistic considerations.

Gastrointestinal absorption of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), dibenzofurans (PCDFs), biphenyls (PCBs) and hexachlorobenzene (HCB) from food was investigated in seven individuals aged 24 to 81 years with different contaminant body burdens using a mass balance approach. The difference between the ingested and excreted amounts of the chlorinated… CONTINUE READING
