Pregnant women, drop the lipstick. Your beauty products could be affecting your unborn child.
A new study found pregnant women's exposure to the chemicals in common beauty products and household items might cause their children to have lower IQs.
Researchers from Columbia University found children exposed to high levels of the phthalate chemicals DnBP and DiBP while they were in the womb had IQ scores that were, on average, more than six points lower than those of children exposed to lower levels.
