Phthalate exposure linked to miscarriage

September 3, 2015

Miscarriage, particularly between 5 and 13 weeks of pregnancy, has been linked to exposure to certain phthalates, according to recent study findings published in Environmental Science & Technology.

“This study aimed to monitor phthalate metabolites in urine of pregnant women and explore the associations between phthalate exposure levels and clinical pregnancy loss,” the researchers wrote. “The results will be helpful to better understand the impacts of phthalate esters (PAEs) on the female reproduction function.”
