Authors’ conclusions: our mixtures analysis does not suggest an independent relationship of autism spectrum disorder or intellectual disability with any of the 25 chemicals examined together in this mixtures analysis.
Reviewers’ commentary: with this Bayesian probabilistic model, the authors clear up, at this moment, the uncertainty about the relationship between the main endocrine disruptors and autism spectrum disorders or intellectual disability, as the association shown in previous studies with “frequentist” analyzes is not demonstrated. It is an important result given the general concern about the effects of these universal pollutants.
Keywords: Endocrine disruptors. Autism. Bayesian analysis.
