ATTENTION TO THE PREGNANT WOMEN! Be sure to avoid the products with these labels!

The research has shown that kids to the age of 7, that have been exposed to a bigger amount of these chemicals, had even to 6 points lower IQ that the kids exposed to less amounts of phthalate.

The newest research published in the PLOS One, has shown that women that had the highest amount of di-n-butyl-phthalate and di-izobutyl-phthalate in their bodies during pregnancy, have given birth to babies with the lower quotient of intelligence.

The research has shown that kids to the age of 7, that have been exposed to a bigger amount of these chemicals, had even to 6 points lower IQ that the kids exposed to less amounts of phthalate.

The phthalates make the plastic more flexible and harder to break out, and allow transfer of odorous. They could be found in many products that we use everyday, such as dishes for keeping food or warming the food in a microwave.

They could also be found in the air-refreshers, shampoos, cosmetics and many other products. In the USA, they are forbidden for use in the toys and in the EU they are forbidden to use in the cosmetics.

But nothing is done to prevent the exposure of the pregnant women to the phthalates, considering the fact that they are still present in the cleaning products, in the dishes we buy the food, in the perfumes, odors, air-refreshers.

The conductors of the research advise that the pregnant women should take preventive measures by themselves, so their exposure to the phthalates is at the minimum.
