Furthermore, many other contaminants, such as methyl mercury (a known developmental toxicant), may also have played a role (but were not measured in the current study). Thus, given the conflicting nature of the results and limitations in the study design, the findings are difficult to interpret with respect to evaluating human health risk. In an effort to follow-up on animal studies suggesting neurodevelopmental effects following exposures to PBDEs, Herbstman et al. [27] conducted a prospective cohort study to evaluate the potential associations between prenatal exposure to PBDEs and neurodevelopment.

Fasting glucose, waist circumference). These outcomes were evaluated relative to serum concentrations of BDE congeners that were above the analytical limit of detection in at least 60% of the study population; thus analyses were limited to BDEs 28, 47, 99, 100, and 153. Participants with serum concentrations less than the limit of detection were used as the reference group; the remaining participants were evaluated by quartiles using logistic regression models. After adjusting for several confounding variables, there was a nonlinear association with diabetes for BDE 153.
