For each woman were made every two years, questions about their health and their well-being through a questionnaire and analyzed urine and blood to check for pollutants such as pesticides and phthalates that can be found in cosmetics and synthetic fragrances and of poor quality. Based on the analysis has been highlighted a correlation between the entry into menopause and the presence of these substances.
It appears that women who had a higher percentage of pollutants, they go through menopause between 1.9 and 3.8 years first, that they had a six times higher probability of having an early menopause.
