Estimated values of variables from linear regression of increment in urinary metabolites (DEP+DETP) against each exposure variable individually using the full data set and two subsets, one excluding a potentially influential value (subject 10/2), one excluding three potential outliers (subjects 15/1, 17/2, and 23/1)
