Summary

The aim of this project is to study how prenatal exposure to contaminants, contaminant mixtures, and food items contributing to contaminant exposures are associated with growth and weight development in children until the age of 8 years. So far, prenatal exposure to acrylamide has been studied with this outcome. The results showed that children of a mother in the highest exposure group had increased risk of overweight and obesity at three years. The trend was evident, but weaker when the children reached five and eight years of age. The intake of acrylamide-rich food items during childhood was also taken into account and the results indicate that maternal intake during pregnancy was the time of exposure of importance for adverse weight development.
