Women exposed to high levels of organophosphates had pregnancies an average of three to four days shorter and babies who weighed about a third of a pound less than women with lower exposure levels, according to a study in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives. However, researchers found that the reduction in pregnancy duration was statistically significant only in white women, and the lower birth weight was significant only for black women.
