The major strength of this paper relies on its prospective design and the use of repeated measurements of fetal biometry. Also, we had repeated measurements of BPA and phthalates at the first and third trimester of pregnancy in almost 500 pregnant women, making this, to our knowledge, the largest and most extensive study on this topic.
