Participants were enrolled in the Early Life Exposure in Mexico to ENvironmental Toxicants (ELEMENT) project which was started in 1994 and consists of three sequentially-enrolled birth cohorts from Mexico City Maternity Hospitals (20). A subset of these children, age 8-14 years, were contacted through their primary caregiver to provide urine samples, serum samples, anthropometry and complete an interview-based questionnaire (n=250). Subjects for this analysis have baseline and follow data on anthropometry, metabolic biomarkers and adequate serum volume for metabolomics analyses (n=206).
