  7. 7. Methodology<br />To test toxins that went through the bloodstream, urine test can be performed<br />Phthalates are examined to metabolite in urine<br />The enzymatic deconjugation of the phthalate metabolites from their glucuronidatedform<br />The separation using high-performance liquid chromatography, and detection using isotope-dilution tandem mass spectrometry<br />
  8. 8. Important Articles<br />Colón and his team<br />Reported elevated levels of several phthalates in serum samples from young girls with premature breast development<br />Also examined phthalate monoester metabolites in urine<br />
  9. 9. Future<br />Try to find safer ingredients to put in cosmetics and personal care products<br />Avoid toxic chemical ingredients<br />
