WECF - Dangers of prenatal exposure to harmful chemicals outlined in Dutch Health Council report
Earlier in March the Dutch Health Council released a report on prenatal exposure to chemical substances stating that the Dutch government should do more to trace the harmful impacts of these substances, especially during pregnancy. They find that chemical substances can affect the development of the immune system, endocrine system and nervous system of the foetus with lifelong impacts.
According to Women in Europe for a Common Future (WECF) this report underscores the urgent need for immediate action to protect pregnant women and their unborn children from the detrimental effects of prenatal exposure to harmful chemicals, including Bisphenol A (BPA).
