Dangers of prenatal exposure to harmful chemicals outlined in Dutch Health Council report

Campaign partner Women in Europe for a Common Future (WECF) highlight a recent report released by the Dutch Health Council on prenatal exposure to chemical substances.

The 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).

The Dutch government should do more to trace the harmful impacts of these substances, especially during pregnancy. Chemical substances can affect the development of the immune system, endocrine system and nervous system of the foetus with lifelong impacts.
