Abstract: Although drinking water contaminants might increase the risk for foetal development, it is unknown whether iron and manganese presenting in drinking water have effects on reproduction. We investigated whether iron and manganese was risk factors for foetal growth retardation. We conducted a case-control study in Kaunas newborns cohort. Cases were term low birth weight (LBW) newborns and controls were normal birth weight newborns. Adjusting for selected term LBW risk factors, women which used drinking water with high iron and manganese concentrations, had increased foetal growth risk than these whose used high quality drinking water (AOR=1.70; 95 % CI 1.07-2.71)
