15. Philippat C, et al. (2014). EDEN Our study suggested associations between prenatal exposure to parabens and triclosan and prenatal or early postnatal growth; however, we relied on only one spot urine sample to assess exposure, and because of the high variability in phenol urinary concentrations reported during pregnancy, using only one sample may result in exposure misclassification (in particular for bisphenol A). methylparaben | Phenols | Triclosan Infants or newborns | Pregnant females France urine 2,4-dichlorophenol | 2,5-dichlorophenol | bisphenol A | butylparaben | ethyl-p-hydroxybenzoate | methylparaben | oxybenzone | propylparaben | Triclosan Details Birth Weight | Fetal Growth Retardation | head development

National Children's Study (NCS) | National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) We report urinary concentrations of environmental phenols in pregnant women in a pilot study of the National Children's Study, and (comparing these results to those from NHANES studies) find that race/ethnicity and geographic location determined urinary concentrations of most phenols, except bisphenol A. race Phenols Pregnant females | Study subjects United States urine 2,4-dichlorophenol | 2,5-dichlorophenol | bisphenol A | methylparaben | oxybenzone | propylparaben | Triclosan Details
22. Wolff MS, et al. (2008). Children's Environmental Health Study We observed a range of phthalate and phenol exposures during pregnancy, but few were associated with birth size; the association of 2,5-dichlorophenol and benzophenone-3 with reduced or increased birth weight could be important in very early or small-size births.

23. Ferguson KK, et al. (2017). National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) We utilized questionnaire data to examine the associations between use of sunscreen and mouthwash and urinary concentrations of phthalate metabolites and phenols; associations between exposure biomarkers and sunscreen use were stronger in women compared with men, and associations with mouthwash use were generally stronger in men compared with women; these results suggest that sunscreen and mouthwash may be important exposure sources for endocrine disrupting compounds. sex Phenols | Phthalic Acids Study subjects United States urine bisphenol A | butylparaben | ethyl-p-hydroxybenzoate | methylparaben | mono-benzyl phthalate | monobutyl phthalate | monoethyl phthalate | mono-isobutyl phthalate | oxybenzone | propylparaben | Triclosan Details
