  • Objectives: There is a concern that persistent organohalogen toxicants, such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), might display endocrine-disrupting effects in exposed populations. In this study the correlations between PCBs and thyrotropin (TSH) and thyroid hormone concentrations in plasma were assessed in adult women. Methods: The study group consisted of 182 fishermen's wives from the Swedish east coast, with a median age of 42 years (range 23–62) and a median current consumption of… CONTINUE READING
