In this study, the estrogenic potency of 4-nonylphenol (NP) was estimated and a risk calculation for non-occupationally exposed humans was performed. The daily intake of non-occupationally exposed persons was estimated to be less than 0.16 mg/day. Risk estimates were based on this daily intake and the relative potency of NP to 17β-estradiol. Comparison of this intake with the NOAEL derived from a 90-day subchronic toxicity study in animals, results in a safety factor of about 20 000. A safety… CONTINUE READING
