Plasticizers can cause asthma and allergies

Study at Furtwangen University shows how blood formation in the bone marrow is affected

The plasticizer DEHP has long been associated with the development of asthma. Until now, what was known is that the plasticizer increases allergic reaction in the lungs. Researchers at Furtwangen University have now found that DEHP also affects the blood formation of stem cells in the bone marrow, in what are known as hematopoietic stem cells.
