Biomonitoring of perfluoroalkyl acids in human urine and estimates of biological half-life

This is research on the Biomonitoring of perfluoroalkyl acids in human urine. Read the paper to learn more.
Please read the abstract of the paper Biomonitoring of perfluoroalkyl acids in human urine and estimates of biological half-life published by Dr Zang.

This is a report using biomonitoring to find out how PFAAs excrete. PFAAs are compounds that are persistent in the body, and bring out adverse health effects. So it is important to know how long it takes to excrete, in order to set up limitations about its exposure. Biomonitoring is often used in knowing how compounds act in the human body, and this is one of the examples. By using this technique, we can avoid the adverse effects caused by chemical compounds, and protect humans from disease, to reach the goal of SDGs 3. Please pay attention to the method and the findings of this paper.
