Filipijnse motie vraagt om onderzoek van Senaat naar ftalaten en vroeggeboortes

17 december 2013

On 3 December 2013 Philippine Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago introduced a resolution calling on the Senate to investigate any possible links between phthalates and premature deliveries. According to resolution SRN-401, "researchers found delivered babies before 37 weeks gestation had higher levels of phthalates in their urine, compared to women who delivered their children at full term, which is 39 weeks." It also claims there is a 16% to 65% increase in risk for preterm births in women with elevated urine phthalate levels.
The research referred to in the resolution was conducted by the University of Michigan School of Public Health (State Recycling Laws Update, 5 December 2013).
