Increased phthalates found in fast food consumers


  1. They looked at BPA and urinary metabolites of di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (ΣDEHPm) and diisononyl phthalate (DiNPm) among 8877 subjects of the US population.
  2. Participants with high consumption  had 23.8% and 39.0%  higher levels of ΣDEHPm and DiNPm than participants with lower fast food exposure. No correlation with BPA. 
  3. Phthalates can enter the body though inhalation, through the skin, or through contaminated food or water. 
  4. Data used was from the 2003-2010 NHANES from the CDC.
