BACKGROUND Organophosphate (OP) compounds, such as tris(1,3-dichloro-2-propyl) phosphate (TDCPP) and triphenyl phosphate (TPP), are commonly used as additive flame retardants and plasticizers in a wide range of materials. Although widespread human exposure to OP flame retardants is likely, there is a lack of human and animal data on potential health effects. OBJECTIVE We explored relationships of TDCPP and TPP concentrations in house dust with hormone levels and semen quality parameters… CONTINUE READING
