Environmental contamination by endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDC) has been a major focus of recent research and policy discussions. EDC-suspected man-made chemicals used as raw materials or plasticizers have been shown to elute from plastic products. To examine whether the dialysate for continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) is contaminated with EDC, we determined bisphenol A (BPA), nonylphenol (NP), di-(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) and di-n-butyl phthalate (DBP) in the pre-used… CONTINUE READING
