10 practical tips to limit the exposure to plasticizers in children and adults
LIFE PERSUADED project is focused on environmental contaminants of industrial origin, Bisphenol A (BPA), and di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP), extensively used as plasticizers.
The main objective of the project was to evaluate the exposure to BPA and DEHP of the italian children population according to age (4-6; 7-10 and 11-14 years old) and sex and of their mothers. Moreover, data on lifestyle and food consumption habits, collected through a structured questionnaire, were used as determinant of exposure to associate
behaviours with a higher risk of exposure for mothers and children, or in some cases, only for one of the two groups.
