Risk of Birth Defects in Australian Communities with High Levels of Brominated Disinfection By-products

Abstract

BACKGROUND By international standards, water supplies in Perth, Western Australia, contain high trihalomethane (THM) levels, particularly the brominated forms. Geographic variability in these levels provided an opportunity to examine cross-city spatial relationships between THM exposure and rates of birth defects (BDs). OBJECTIVES Our goal was to examine… (More)
