The National Human Adipose Tissue Survey (NHATS) provides the U.S. EPA with a unique capability for monitoring human exposure to potentially toxic substances that persist in the environment. NHATS is an annual program to collect and chemically analyze adipose tissues from a cross-section of the general U.S. population. Historically, the analysis of the tissues has focused on PCBs and organochlorine pesticides. EPA's Office of Toxic Substances (OTS) has developed an aggressive approach to provide a comprehensive assessment of potentially toxic substances in human adipose tissue. A broad scan analysis concept was introduced beginning with specimens collected in fiscal year 1982. The tissues were analyzed as composites based on the nine U.S. Census divisions and three age groups. The composites were analyzed for volatile and semivolatile organics at the parts per billion level and PCDD and PCDF at the parts per trillion level. Several tissue samples were analyzed by individually coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES) and neutron activation analyses (NAA). The report provides a synopsis of each of these analytical efforts.
