Past literature on exposure to lipophilic agents such as organochlorines (OCs) is conflicting, posing challenges for the interpretation of their potential human health risks. Since blood is often used as a proxy for adipose tissue, it is necessary to model serum lipids when assessing health risks of OCs. Using a simulation study, we evaluated four… CONTINUE READING
