Abstract

Background: Human breast milk is the most important food for infants and one of the main roads to exposure to toxic substances. In this study, nonylphenol (NP) levels in human milk samples collected from Turkish mothers (n=100) were determined, and the factors including mothers' demographics, eating habits, obstetric histories, and usage of cleaning and cosmetic products were examined.
