Third report on human biomonitoring of environmental chemicals in Canada: H128-1/10-601-2E-PDF

results of the Canadian Health Measures Survey Cycle 3 (2012-2013).

"These data tables present national data on concentrations of environmental chemicals in Canadians. These data were collected as part of the Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS), an ongoing national direct health measures survey. Statistics Canada, in partnership with Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada, launched the CHMS in 2007 to collect health and wellness data and biological specimens on a nationally representative sample of Canadians. Biological specimens were analyzed for indicators of health status, chronic and infectious diseases, nutritional status, and environmental chemicals. The CHMS biomonitoring component measures many environmental chemicals and/or their metabolites in blood and urine of survey participants. An environmental chemical can be defined as a chemical substance, either human-made or natural, that is present in the environment and to which humans may be exposed through media such as air, water, food, soil, dust, or consumer products. The data for cycle 3 were collected between January 2012 and December 2013 from approximately 5,800 Canadians aged 3 to 79 years at 16 sites across Canada. Cycle 3 included 48 environmental chemicals measured in individual samples, 33 of which have been measured in previous cycles"--Introd., p. 1.
