Evidence of adverse reproductive outcomes from exposure in the general population is sparse. AIMS To evaluate the association between atrazine levels in municipal drinking water and the following adverse reproductive outcomes: increased risk of preterm delivery, low birth weight (LBW), and small-for-gestational-age (SGA) status.
