Интересантна америчка студија, данас објављени резултати...

Елем - хемикалије масовно коришћене у производњи намештаја, тепиха, електронике, тканина и пластике седамдесетих и осамдесетих година прошлог века (ПБДЕ - полибромовани дифенилетри) се временом излучују, мешају са прашином, удишу, и таложе у масним наслагама тела, значајно смањујући женску плодност.

Студија показује да жене са високим концентрацијама ПБДЕ имају за 50% ниже шансе да затрудне.

Prof Kim Harley, of the University of Berkeley said: "When the analysis was limited to women who were actively trying to become pregnant, we found that they were half as likely to conceive in any given month if they had high levels of PBDE in their blood.

"We aren't looking at infertility, just sub-fertility, because all the women in our study eventually became pregnant.

"Had we included infertile couples in our study, it is possible that we would have seen an even stronger effect from PBDE exposure."
