We are using an organophosphate (OP) urinary biomarker screen (gas chromatography with flame photometric detection, GC/FPD) to evaluate pesticide exposure among 154 children ≤6 years of age living in a heavily farmed border (US–Mexico) community. The screen detects diethylphosphates (DEPs) and dimethylphosphates… CONTINUE READING
