BACKGROUND Perfluoroalkyl acids are persistent compounds used in various industrial -applications. Of these compounds, perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) is currently detected in humans worldwide. A recent study on low-dose developmental exposure to PFOA in mice reported increased weight and elevated biomarkers of adiposity in postpubertal female offspring. OBJECTIVE We examined whether the findings of increased weight in postpubertal female mice could be replicated in humans. METHODS A prospective… CONTINUE READING
