We used data collected from participants of the Early Life Exposures in Mexico to ENvironmental Toxicants (ELEMENT) study, which consists of three sequentially-enrolled birth cohorts of pregnant women. Research protocols of this study were approved by the Institutional Review Board at University of Michigan and the Mexico National Institute of Public Health. We obtained informed consent from mothers and informed assent from children prior to enrollment.
