Organophosphate flame retardants (OPFRs) are already ubiquitous environmental contaminants and their use is projected to increases as other flame retardants are phased out or banned. We will investigate whether prenatal OPFR exposures adversely impact growth from birth to age 3 years. Identifying an association may result in substantial public health gains as rapid growth and obesity in early-life are associated with life-long adverse health.
