Hairspray link to birth defect24th November 2008
A study carried out by Imperial College London has linked pregnant women's exposure to hairspray with genital defects in boys.
However, Professor Paul Elliott, the study's head, said: "Women shouldn't be alarmed. This study adds a bit more evidence to the general picture about these chemicals, but more research will be needed to demonstrate that the link exists. Pregnant women will need to make their own choices about whether or not to avoid these kind of exposures."
