Endocrine-disrupting chemicals: an Endocrine Society scientific statement.
The evidence that endocrine disruptors have effects on male and female reproduction, breast development and cancer, prostate cancer, neuroendocrinology, thyroid, metabolism and obesity, and cardiovascular endocrinology is presented.

These observations urge further study of the onset of puberty as a possible sensitive and early marker of the interactions between environmental conditions and genetic susceptibility that can influence physiological and pathological processes.

Stability and isolation phenomena for Yang-Mills fields
In this article a series of results concerning Yang-Mills fields over the euclidean sphere and other locally homogeneous spaces are proved using differential geometric methods. One of our main…

A possible relationship between transient exposure to endocrine disrupters and sexual precocity is suggested, and deserves further studies in immigrant children with non-advanced puberty.

It is hypothesized that gonadoblastomas originate from surviving OCT3/4-positive germ cells in areas of undifferentiated gonadal tissue within the dysgenetic gonad, and supportive evidence was obtained that carcinoma in situ arises in regions with testicular differentiation.

Environmental Factors and Puberty Timing: Expert Panel Research Needs
The panel concluded that available experimental animal and human data support a possible role of endocrine-disrupting chemicals and body size in relation to alterations in pubertal onset and progression in boys and girls.
