  • 288 - Alternative Flame Retardants May Lead to Neurobehavioral Effects -- Levin
    Release Date: 12/05/2018

    Organophosphate flame retardant (OPFR) exposure early in life may be linked to behavioral impacts into adulthood, according to a new study in zebrafish. The results provide evidence that OPFRs, which have been introduced in commercial products in the past decade, may not be a safe alternative to brominated flame retardants, which were phased out because they were found to be harmful to normal development.
