Phtalates urinaires, maladies non transmissibles et marqueurs de l’inflammation dans une cohorte masculine australienne Volume 16, issue 6, November-December 2017



This news is based on the following article: Bai P, Wittert G, Taylor A, et al. The association between total phtalate concentration and non-communicable diseases and chronic inflammation in South Australian urban dwelling men. Environ Res 2017; 158: 366-72. doi: 10.1016/j.envres.2017.06.021


In finding a positive association between urinary phthalate concentrations and cardiovascular disease, diabetes and hypertension in a hitherto little-studied population, this study reinforces the hypothesis that phthalate exposure contributes to the rise of cardiometabolic disease.
