EEB | Babies exposed to highly toxic nappies face severe disease threat later in life

Your substances


Officials say 90% of European babies have been exposed to “very severe” chemicals in nappies / diapers sold throughout Europe in recent years, putting them at risk of “potentially very severe diseases” later in life.

France’s ANSES agency tested best-selling brands of disposable nappies and found 38 “very severe hazard” chemicals in nappies sold throughout Europe. Most of the chemicals disrupt hormones, the officials say, a property that means they have no safe exposure level.
