Cinnaminson, NJ, August 5, 2013

Although all of the human health effects of exposure to phthalates are not fully understood, a number of government agencies in recent years have begun to study their impact on people. Phthalates have also caught the attention of the media and a growing concern in the general public.

Phthalates are a group of chemicals used to make plastics more flexible and harder to break. Some phthalates are used as solvents for other materials and they are used in hundreds of products that most people are exposed to on a regular basis.

Some phthalates have already been banned in certain child care articles and toys since children can be exposed to phthalates by chewing on them and other products made with the chemicals. Young children may also have a greater risk of being exposed to phthalate particles in dust than adults because of their hand-to-mouth behaviors.

“In one recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, researchers found measurable levels of many phthalate metabolites in the general population,” reported Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President, Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “These findings indicate that phthalate exposure is widespread in the U.S. population.  For concerned people in need of phthalate testing services, EMSL provides a wide range of testing services. EMSL’s laboratory is staffed with PhD scientists and the industry’s leading phthalate testing experts. Our scientists have access to a wide range of advanced instrumentation for identifying phthalates in products, food, air and dust samples. To help educate people about phthalates, EMSL recently launched to provide information along with testing services for these controversial chemicals.”

EMSL has also released an online video about phthalates that can be seen at:
