    Default Study Finds Baby Shampoo Traces In Urine

    Study Finds Baby Shampoo Traces In Urine. Chemicals Called Phthalates Under Attack From Some Environmental Groups

    POSTED: 6:31 am EST February 4, 2008

    CHICAGO -- A new study concluded that baby shampoos, lotions and powders could expose infants to chemicals linked to possible reproductive problems.

    The small study published in the Journal Pediatrics said elevated levels of the chemicals were found in the urine of babies after the products were applied to them.

    Chemicals called phthalates are under attack from some environmental groups. They aren't limited by the federal government, but the state of California and some countries have restricted their use.

    Animal studies show the chemicals can cause reproductive birth defects, but human scientific evidence is lacking.

    The chief scientist for the Personal Care Products Council questioned the report. He said the chemicals could have come from diapers or other sources.

    The government said there's no compelling evidence the chemicals pose a safety risk.

    They are under attack because they don't contain enough vowels!
