Eerste resultaten gepubliceerd van onderzoek naar blootstelling zwangere vrouwen aan BPA en ftalaten

21 augustus 2014

Health Canada has published the first results from the Maternal-Infant Research on Environmental Chemicals (MIREC) Study that examined phthalate and Bisphenol A (BPA) exposure among pregnant Canadian women.
The presence of BPA and phthalates in pregnant women is not unexpected. This study found a lower average BPA concentration in urine, and a lower percentage of women with detectable levels of BPA in their urine, than those observed in women of reproductive age surveyed in a Canadian national population-based survey. The reason for the observed differences is not yet known, but there may be population differences between the subjects (Nieuwsbericht Government of Canada, 19 juni 2014).
