Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances in serum and associations with food consumption and use of personal care products in the Norwegian biomonitoring study from the EU project EuroMix

The participants in the EuroMix study were exposed to PFASs through their diet and PCP use. Several PFASs were found to be positively associated with fish consumption. Sunscreen, mouthwash, and lip gloss/lip balm were found to be positively associated with PFASs. January 30, 2021 | Environmental Research
