Reproductive Toxins

Reproductive toxins are chemicals that can damage the reproductive systems of both men and women. Exposure to these agents before conception can produce a wide range of adverse effects including reduced fertility, unsuccessful, an abnormal fetus, reduced libido, or menstrual dysfunction. Maternal exposure after conception may cause perinatal death, low birth weight, birth defects, developmental and/or behavioral disabilities, and cancer.

The following table is a list of reproductive toxins.  It is not an exhaustive list, so other sources of information such as MSDSs should be consulted.  This list was derived from the State of California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act (Proposition 65) list of chemicals known to the state to cause reproductive toxicity and from a list of reproductive toxins developed by Brookhaven National Laboratory.
