This was likely to be one of the significant contributing factors to the adverse findings in the ATBC lung cancer prevention trials (Prasad 2004b).
Yes, there are alternatives, such as ATBC, which some companies are using, but we don't know very much about them, at least compared to DNIP which is widely regarded as the best plastic softener.
In addition," said a report from the committee, "the CSTEE is of the opinion that the risk assessment has provided sufficient evidence to show that toys plasticised by ATBC can be safely mouthed by children.
