Under ordinary circumstances it’s challenging for couples to produce a healthy baby:

  • 10 percent of women are infertile
  • 10 percent of men are too
  • 3 percent of newborns have birth defects
  • Up to 40% of pregnancies are unsuccessful, depending on the mother’s age at conception

Then add in exposures to toxic art materials like resins, glues, solvents and metals that have been linked to problems: reduced fertility, miscarriages, birth defects, low birth weight, childhood cancer and developmental disorders.

Learn how to reduce reproductive risks from toxic chemicals.

Join other artists and designers at a free lecture and discussion on Reproductive Hazards in the Arts. Refreshments will be provided! RSVP to dave.waddell@kingcounty.gov or 206-263-3069.
