Pollution in Minority Newborns

The Environmental Working Group, in partnership with Rachel’s Network, commissioned five laboratories in the U.S., Canada, and Europe to analyze umbilical cord blood collected from 10 minority infants born in 2007 and 2008. Collectively, the laboratories identified up to 232 industrial compounds and pollutants in these babies, finding complex mixtures of compounds in each infant.

This research demonstrates that industrial chemicals cross the placenta in large numbers to contaminate a baby before the moment of birth. Test results are shown below.
