CDC’s National Report on Exposure to Environmental Chemicals: Updated Tables March 2018

CDC’s Division of Laboratory Sciences released new data to the Fourth National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals, an ongoing biomonitoring assessment of the U.S. population’s exposure to environmental chemicals.

The Updated Tables, March, 2018 provides nationally-representative biomonitoring data from CDC’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey that has become available since the publication of the Fourth Report in 2009.

The update provides data for 346 chemicals, of which 38 are new and 176 have updated data since the Updated Tables, January 2017.  This release includes previous updates to the tables, and provides new data for blood metals, phthalate metabolites, and volatile organic compounds. In addition, serum per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances were measured in a special sample of children ages 3 to 11 years, and metabolites of several organophosphate flame retardants are reported for the first time.
