David got the whole thing on video. These videos are the Texas DSHS presentation. The best part, the Q&A will be posted later.
You’ll notice in the video how we are told emphatically that they couldn’t test the children because there were no reference studies. The following quote is from Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology (2008)18, 421–429, Relationships between levels of volatile organic compounds in air and blood from the general population, YS LIN, PP EGEGHY AND SM RAPPAPORT.
“NHANES used a complex sampling design, including over-sampling of minorities and young children, and provided sampling weights for constructing national estimates.”
Children don’t smoke or pump gas or work as mechanics. So, if children are tested and high levels of exposure are found, you can’t blame the exposure on “consumer or occupational/hobby related products…”
Also note that this study has no benchmark so the Texas DSHS chose to use the 95% benchmark.
