The objective of this paper is to investigate the association of exposure to toxic
substances and diseases. Choose interesting components from each category from below. At least
one component should be chosen from each group and those three should be related. For
example, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), from toxic substances – in utero exposure
from exposure pathway – “asthma” from diseases.; from diseases. Find strong five to seven scientific evidence
from the peer reviewed journal articles that are studied on the subject and support your main
The paper should have a minimum of 2200 words. Word count
only from introduction to conclusion excluding a list of references and title page for word limit.
References must be cited in EHP format.
Here are the three categories and pool of components:
1. Toxic Substances:
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH’s)
Endocrine Disrupter (Bisphenol A, Bisphenol S, PFOA)
2. Exposure Pathway/ Window of exposure at lifetime:
In utero exposure (exposure during pregnancy)
Childhood exposure (infant, toddler, teenagers, adolescent)
Dietary Exposure (ingestion of foods, drinks)
