Scientists find 42 never-before-seen chemicals in pregnant women and their babies

Updated: Dec 24, 2021

"Scientists detected 109 chemicals during the study, including 55 never reported in humans and 42 labeled “mystery chemicals” with no sources or known uses. Researchers said the chemicals most likely come from consumer products or other industrial sources, and the fact they were found in both the blood of the pregnant women and their children suggest they travel through the mother’s placenta."
