    There is increasing concern about the endocrine disrupting chemicals and their involvement in obesity, diabetes, fertility and cancer. However, much baseline data is missing and many of these chemicals are lipophilic and sequester in fat; therefore as the prevalence of obesity is increasing in most populations this study was performed. The aim of this study was to provide baseline data on the concentrations of chlorinated and brominated dioxins and related compounds as well as polybrominated diphenyl ethers to assess whether concentrations of these compounds are higher in obese than control subjects
