Organic food and malformations in the urinary tract (hypospadias) in newborn boys

- new article

Women who ate organically produced food during pregnancy had halved likelihood of giving birth to a boy with hypospadias compared to women who never or seldom did so.
These are findings from a new study from the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study (MoBa) at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, newly published by Environmental Health Perspectives (http://ehp.niehs.nih.gov/1409518/)

The study is financed by the Norwegian Research Council and part of a doctoral Project by SIFO-researcher Hanne Torjusen investigating whether consumption of organic food during pregnancy is associated with health of mother and/or child.
