Unborn babies at risk from perfume?

1st September 2008

A study from Edinburgh University has said that chemicals contained in some cosmetics could potentially cause fertility problems for males when they are older.

Professor Richard Sharpe of the Medical Research Council's Human Reproductive Sciences Unit, led the team. He told BBC Scotland's news website: "There are lots of compounds in perfumes that we know in higher concentrations have the potential to have biological effects, so it is just being ultra safe to say that by avoiding using them your baby isn't at risk."
