10. Menai M, et al. (2012). EDEN This study highlights the effect of cadmium toxicity on fetal growth through the probable accumulation and transmission of this metal through the placenta; the close relationship between blood cadmium levels and smoking habits indicates that cadmium may be a relevant biomarker for smoking toxicity on fetal development. tobacco Cadmium | Lead Fetuses | Infants or newborns | Pregnant females France blood | blood, cord Cadmium | Lead Details Birth Weight | Fetal Growth Retardation
11. Amegah AK, et al. (2012). Maternal use of charcoal as a cooking fuel during pregnancy and burning of garbage at home are strong determinants of average fetal growth and risk of low birth weight.

12. Pedersen M, et al. (2016). Transport-related Air Pollution and Health impacts-Integrated Methodologies for Assessing Particulate Matter (TRANSPHORM) Sulfur in both particulate matter <= 2.5 and <= 10 microns (PM2.5 and PM10) and nickel in PM2.5 were associated with an increased risk of term low birth weight, reduced birth weight, and smaller birth head circumference.

17. 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
