Table: Consumer products tested for endocrine disruptors and asthma-associated chemicals

Concentrations of 66 endocrine disruptors and chemicals associated with asthma in samples of the following products are presented in R.E. Dodson, M. Nishioka, L.J. Standley, L.J. Perovich, J.G. Brody, R.A. Rudel. 2012. Endocrine Disruptors and Asthma-Associated Chemicals in Consumer Products. Environmental Health Perspectives.

This study represents only a small fraction of consumer products and a small number of the chemicals used in products. In addition, since manufacturers are constantly reformulating their products and products may vary in different regions of the U.S., results from these tests may not apply to current products on the shelves. The study combined the conventional products into composite samples for testing, so results for conventional products cannot be linked to a specific product. Alternative products were tested individually.
