Limitations, uncertainties and competing interpretations regarding chemical exposures and diabetes

GG Bond, DR Dietrich
Trasande et al1 reported that limiting exposure to alleged endocrine disrupting chemicals would reduce the burden of adult diabetes by 13% and save €4.51 billion/year. On review, however, their paper fails to meet standards for good practices in scientific reporting—stating the limitations of the underlying data, clearly articulating uncertainties, and presenting competing views or interpretations of data.
