Melnick (1) recently suggested that because peroxisome proliferation is not established as an obligatory step in the carcinogenicity of peroxisome proliferators (PPs), the proposal that the peroxisome proliferator di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) poses no carcinogenic risk to humans (2) due to species differences in peroxisome proliferation should be viewed as an unvalidated hypothesis (1).
