    Baby boys are far more likely to have smaller, less developed genitals if their mothers had high levels of chemicals commonly found in cosmetics, detergents, medicines and plastics, a study released today said.

    The higher the levels of the chemical compound phthalates in the mothers during the final months of pregnancy, the less masculine their boys were when examined by pediatricians, said the study's lead author, Shanna Swan, a professor of reproductive epidemiology at the University of Rochester.

Just saying "phthalates" gives even the manliest man a Cindy Brady lisp - or maybe the Daffy Duck version, if he's mad. Dangerous pstuff indeed.

Phthalates thrunk your peniths?
