    • Abstract:
      The article discusses a study by Simmons and colleagues on the reproductive toxicity of a mixture of chlorination disinfection by-products (DBPs) in rats. Topics include the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's regulation of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs) in chlorinated water, Simmons and colleagues' report of no adverse effects on fertility, pregnancy, pup survival, or birth weight in rats exposed to DBPs, and a delay in the onset of puberty in rats exposed to DBPs.
