Some environmental pollutants may be harmful to a developing baby. Here's a list of them: Lead: In gasoline, water pipes, solders, storage batteries, construction material, paints, dyes and wood preservatives. Mercury: Fish contaminated with mercury have been linked to cerebral palsy and microcephaly. PCBs: Once again found in fish, birds. Limit your intake of fish while you are pregnant. Pesticides: Human exposure to pesticides is common because they are used extensively. Those of most concern contain several agents - DDT, chlordane, heptachlor and lindane. There are a number of harmful agents to avoid while you are pregnant. A book that I got when I was pregnant is called "Your Pregnancy Week by Week" and it is very informative for this type of question. I hope the information I provided was what you were looking for and I hope you found it useful. Stacey
