1. Cave M, et al. (2010). National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that environmental pollutants are dose-dependently associated with increased risk for alanine aminotransferase elevation and suspected nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in the NHANES adult population. 2,2',3,3',4,4',5-heptachlorobiphenyl | 2,2',3,5,5',6-hexachlorobiphenyl | 2,2',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl | 2,3,3',4,4',5-hexachlorobiphenyl | 2,3,3',4,4'-pentachlorobiphenyl | 2,3',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl | 2,4,4',5-tetrachlorobiphenyl | 2,4,4'-trichlorobiphenyl | 2,4,5,2',4',5'-hexachlorobiphenyl | 2,4,5,2',5'-pentachlorobiphenyl | 2,5,2',5'-tetrachlorobiphenyl | 3,4,5,3',4',5'-hexachlorobiphenyl | 3,4,5,3',4'-pentachlorobiphenyl | Cadmium | Lead | Mercury | PCB 180 | Polychlorinated Biphenyls Study subjects United States blood | urine 2,2',3,3',4,4',5-heptachlorobiphenyl | 2,2',3,5,5',6-hexachlorobiphenyl | 2,2',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl | 2,3,3',4,4',5-hexachlorobiphenyl | 2,3,3',4,4'-pentachlorobiphenyl | 2,3',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl | 2,4,4',5-tetrachlorobiphenyl | 2,4,4'-trichlorobiphenyl | 2,4,5,2',4',5'-hexachlorobiphenyl | 2,4,5,2',5'-pentachlorobiphenyl | 2,5,2',5'-tetrachlorobiphenyl | 3,4,5,3',4',5'-hexachlorobiphenyl | 3,4,5,3',4'-pentachlorobiphenyl | Cadmium | Lead | Mercury | PCB 180 | Polychlorinated Biphenyls Details Fatty Liver

4. Michalek JE, et al. (2001). We found an increased risk of 'other liver disorders' among veterans with the highest dioxin levels; whether the associations observed were causal is unclear from these data. Agent Orange | Defoliants, Chemical Veterans United States serum Tetrachlorodibenzodioxin Details Liver Diseases
5. Ranzi A, et al. (2011). No increased risk of mortality and morbidity was found in the entire area among people living close to incinerators. The internal analysis of the cohort based on dispersion modeling found excesses of mortality for some cancer types in the highest exposure categories, especially in women. People in the highest heavy metal exposure categories tended to have a lower socioeconomic status than those in the lowest categories. The interpretation of the findings is limited given the pilot nature of the study sex | socioeconomic status Air Pollutants Study subjects Italy waste, industrial Cadmium | Dioxins | Mercury | Metals, Heavy | Nitrogen Dioxide | Particulate Matter Details Breast Neoplasms | Colorectal Neoplasms | Death | Liver Neoplasms | Neoplasms | Stomach Neoplasms
6. Thompson JA, et al. (2008). The current study identified geographic factors supporting more focused studies of germ cell tumors and 'other' gliomas in areas of intense cropping, hepatic cancer near Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP) release facilities and specific locations with increased risks for CNS embryonal tumors and for 'other' leukemias.

7. Hyder O, et al. (2013). National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) Environmental cadmium exposure was associated with hepatic necroinflammation, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis in men, and hepatic necroinflammation in women. age | race | sex Cadmium Study subjects United States urine Cadmium Details Death | Liver Diseases | Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease | inflammatory response | necrotic cell death
8. Wu Z, et al. (2017). We report urinary biomarkers for occupational exposure to N,N-dimethylformamide and reveal dose-response relationships between their levels and liver injury, with males having a greater risk of injury. sex Dimethylformamide Workers China urine methylformamide | N-acetyl-S-(N-methylcarbamoyl)cysteine Details Chemical and Drug Induced Liver Injury
9. Borg D, et al. (2013). The objective of this study was to for the first time perform a cumulative health risk assessment of the 17 perfluoroalkylated and polyfluoroalkylated substances measured in the Swedish population, individually and in combination, using the Hazard Index approach.

11. Silver SR, et al. (2015). Agricultural Health Study (AHS) This suggestion of an association between metolachlor and liver cancer among pesticide applicators is a novel finding and echoes observation of increased liver neoplasms in some animal studies; however, our findings for both liver cancer and follicular cell lymphoma warrant follow-up to better differentiate effects of metolachlor use from other factors. metolachlor Workers United States Details Agricultural Workers' Diseases | Liver Neoplasms | Lymphoma, Follicular

17. Goto H, et al. (2012). Life Span Study We calculated the standardized mortality ratio (SMR) for the atomic bomb survivors versus the entire population of Japan in childhood and compared them with a true non-exposed group.
