Toxic Chemicals in Our Bodies

index page for Toxic Chemicals profiles

We found many of these chemicals in all of our participants.

Click on the name of a chemical or chemical family for more information on how we are exposed, why we should be concerned about health risks, and what we can do to protect ourselves from these toxics.
