Alternative Flame Retardants May Lead to Neurobehavioral Effects

Alternative Flame Retardants May Lead to Neurobehavioral Effects

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.
