Study: Skin Can Absorb Certain Cancer-Causing Substances
While lungs remain the main way by which air pollutants get into the body, and, if in sufficient quantities, cause ill-health effects, a new study shows that certain pollutants ('semi-volatiles' like phthalates) can be drawn in by the skin.
This effect is known as 'dermal uptake' and the levels absorbed can be equivalent to those drawn in through breathing via the lungs.
Phthalates are esters of phthalic acid.
