Can bathing your infant cause reproductive trouble?

This study shows that certain chemicals from toiletry products are being absorbed by infants and being detected in the urine with levels high enough to be a concern These same chemicals are used in fragrances and such in the beauty industry. " All urine samples had detectable levels of at least one phthalate, and most had levels of several more. The highest levels were linked with shampoos, lotions and powders, and were most prevalent in babies younger than 8 months" http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080204/ap_on_he_me/baby_products_chemicals;_ylt=AsgSwQQd9K7oEy4C._oUWmKs0NUE

I don't know of someone who bath an infant and caused reproductive trouble. But it might have some good points for parents to ponder. Happy day to you!

I am not sure many people would consider that it was their bath water from their infancy that caused them their troubles, the time frame is so long between cause and effect.
