Commercial plasticizers are introduced in Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) to obtain flexibility, high elongation to break, durability, resistance to heat and chemicals. Very used plasticizers are phthalates, most commonly phthalate being di-2-ethyl hexyl phthalate (DEHP). The phthalates are not chemically bound to PVC and can migrate from different devices and objects due to the influence of temperature, or to other types of degradation. In article are presented the harm effects of phthalates. Through… Expand

Medications as a source of human exposure to phthalates.
TLDR
The highest estimated human exposure to DBP was more than two orders of magnitude lower than the no observable adverse effect level from animal studies, and further research is necessary to determine the proportional contribution of medications, as well as personal care and consumer products, to a person's total phthalate burden.

TLDR
Oven baking of polymer clays may cause short-term, high-level inhalation exposures to higher molecular weight phthalates and cosmetics, personal care products, pharmaceuticals, nutritional supplements, herbal remedies and insecticides, may result in significant but poorly quantified human exposures.
