  • We are using fish consumption as a proxy for PCB exposure while simultaneously assessing the effect of fish consumption on pregnancy outcomes such as gestation and birth size.

  • Regardless of the decay constant, exclusion of those who reported that their GLSCF consumption changed a lot, or application of the model to GLSCF consumers only, there was no indication of a linear trend between odds of a male child and the natural log of paternal PCB concentration.

  • Therefore, by excluding mothers with missing data, we would potentially bias against finding a decreasing sex ratio with increasing PCB levels.

  • Thus, we also ran the analyses after applying the toxicokinetic model only to those subjects who consumed GLSCF, while for subjects who were not GLSCF consumers PCB concentrations were left at the levels found at the time of the blood draw.

  • Evidence may in fact suggest, although there is some debate, that exposure of female rhesus monkeys to aroclor 1254 (a mixture of PCB congeners) leads to a reduction in the sex ratio of offspring, possibly contributed to by increased spontaneous abortion of male fetuses [ 28 29 30 ] . Preconception parental estrogen levels have also been hypothesized to affect the sex ratio of live births [ 22 ] , and given the estrogenic and anti-estrogenic actions of different PCB congeners [ 57 58 ] , this could be another mechanism by which parental exposure to PCBs alters the sex ratio.
