4. Williams DL, et al. (2011). These findings demonstrate that dairy operations increase community exposures to agents with known human health effects. This study also provides evidence that airborne biological contaminants (i.e. cow allergen) associated with airborne particulate matter are statistically elevated at distances up to three miles (4.8 km) from dairy operations.

14. Philippat C, et al. (2015). Childhood Autism Risks from Genetics and the Environment (CHARGE) House dust levels of phthalates were not associated with autism spectrum disorder (but limited interpretation); however, associations were observed for diethyl phthalate and dibutyl phthalate with impairments in several adaptive functions and greater hyperactivity, along with evidence for increased risk of developmental delay.
