Identifying Workplace Chemical Exposures to Help Prevent Birth Defects

To learn whether exposure to potentially hazardous chemicals in the workplace
increases the risk of birth defects, North American researchers hope to address
some key questions:

  • Which workplace chemicals contribute to specific birth defects?

  • What level of chemical exposure contributes to birth defects?

  • When is chemical exposure likely to cause birth defects?

  • What workplace factors other than chemical exposure might be involved?
