* This news is based on the following article: Agay-Shay K, Martinez D, Valvi D, et al.Exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals during pregnancy and weight at 7 years of age: a multi-pollutant approach. Environ Health Perspect 2015; 123: 1030-7.doi: 10.1289/ehp.1409049

The effects of prenatal exposure to 27 potentially obesogenic substances on body mass index and risk of overweight at age 7 were assessed in a Spanish mother-child cohort. A multi-pollutant analysis confirms the results obtained under the usual single-pollutant approach and underlines the influence of exposure to organochlorine compounds.
