Prenatal Exposure to Organophosphate Pesticides and IQ in 7-Year-Old Children
TLDR
Prenatal but not postnatal urinary DAP concentrations were associated with poorer intellectual development in 7-year-old children, higher but nonetheless within the range of levels measured in the general U.S. population. Expand
Effects of male age on semen quality and fertility: a review of the literature.
TLDR
The weight of the evidence suggests that increased male age is associated with a decline in semen volume, sperm motility, and sperm morphology but not with sperm concentration. Expand
Organophosphate Pesticide Exposure and Neurodevelopment in Young Mexican-American Children
TLDR
Pregnant and child OP urinary metabolite levels were negatively associated with MDI, but child measures were positively associated and both prenatal and postnatal DAPs were associated with risk of pervasive developmental disorder at 24 months of age. Expand
Association of in Utero Organophosphate Pesticide Exposure and Fetal Growth and Length of Gestation in an Agricultural Population
TLDR
These associations with gestational age may be biologically plausible given that organophosphate pesticides depress cholinesterase and acetylcholine stimulates contraction of the uterus, and despite these observed associations, the rate of preterm delivery in this population was lower than in a U.S. reference population. Expand
Exposures of children to organophosphate pesticides and their potential adverse health effects.
TLDR
A Center for the Health Assessment of Mothers and Children of Salinas, or CHAMACOS in Monterey County, California, will assess (italic) in utero and postnatal OP pesticide exposure and the relationship of exposure to neurodevelopment, growth, and symptoms of respiratory illness in children. Expand
In Utero and Childhood Polybrominated Diphenyl Ether (PBDE) Exposures and Neurodevelopment in the CHAMACOS Study
TLDR
This study contributes to growing evidence suggesting that PBDEs have adverse impacts on child neurobehavioral development by investigating the relation of in utero and child PBDE exposure to neuro behavioral development among participants in CHAMACOS. Expand
Organophosphate Pesticide Exposure and Attention in Young Mexican-American Children: The CHAMACOS Study
TLDR
In utero D APs and, to a lesser extent, postnatal DAPs were associated adversely with attention as assessed by maternal report, psychometrician observation, and direct assessment. Expand
The Pine River Statement: Human Health Consequences of DDT Use
TLDR
Evidence is provided to suggest that DDT and DDE may pose a risk to human health, and the lack of knowledge about human exposure and health effects in communities where DDT is currently being sprayed for malaria control is highlighted. Expand
Exogenous shocks to the human sex ratio: the case of September 11, 2001 in New York City.
TLDR
The findings support the male fetal loss explanation of the association between exogenous population shocks and the secondary sex ratio. Expand
BMI in relation to sperm count: an updated systematic review and collaborative meta-analysis.
TLDR
Overweight and obesity were associated with an increased prevalence of azoospermia or oligozoospermia, and whether weight normalization could improve sperm parameters should be evaluated further. Expand
