Phthalates are synthetic chemicals used as a plasticizer in
coated, extended-release drugs. They are proven, in extensive laboratory
studies on rodents, to decrease sperm counts, reduce fertility in both males
and females, and cause testicular atrophy, birth defects (including skeletal
malformation and cleft palate), “small or absent reproductive organs,”
developmental delays, and miscarriages.
The FDA admitted as much in a 2012 guidance for industry, in
which they politely asked drug companies to stop using phthalates. Two years
later, these dangerous chemicals are still in widespread use. ANH-USA has submitted a legal petition to the FDA, asking them to ban phthalates altogether because the voluntary approach has not worked.
