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
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
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
Prenatal and Postnatal Bisphenol A Exposure and Body Mass Index in Childhood in the CHAMACOS Cohort
TLDR
Increasing BPA concentrations in mothers during pregnancy were associated with decreased BMI, body fat, and overweight/obesity among their daughters at 9 years of age, and these findings were strongest in prepubertal girls. Expand
PBDE Concentrations in Women’s Serum and Fecundability
TLDR
A significant decreases in fecundability associated with PBDE exposure in women was found, and PBDEs were not associated with menstrual cycle characteristics. Expand
Organophosphate Urinary Metabolite Levels during Pregnancy and after Delivery in Women Living in an Agricultural Community
TLDR
Both prenatal and postpartum metabolite levels were higher in these Salinas Valley women than in a sample of women of childbearing age in the general U.s. population (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey), although the deviation from U.S. reference levels was most pronounced after delivery. Expand
Effects of exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls and organochlorine pesticides on thyroid function during pregnancy.
TLDR
Results suggest that exposure to PCBs and/or hexachlorobenzene at background levels may affect thyroid function during pregnancy, since thyroid hormones of maternal origin may play an essential role in fetal neurodevelopment. Expand
Polybrominated Diphenyl Ether (PBDE) Flame Retardants and Thyroid Hormone during Pregnancy
TLDR
Exposure to PBDEs is associated with lower TSH during pregnancy, and this finding may have implications for maternal health and fetal development. Expand
Maternal Urinary Bisphenol A during Pregnancy and Maternal and Neonatal Thyroid Function in the CHAMACOS Study
TLDR
Exposure to BPA during pregnancy is related to reduced total T4 in pregnant women and decreased TSH in male neonates, which may have implications for fetal and neonatal development. Expand
Association of prenatal exposure to polybrominated diphenyl ethers and infant birth weight.
TLDR
Findings were diminished slightly and were no longer statistically significant when maternal weight gain was included in the models, and PBDE congeners were not associated with birth length, head circumference, or gestational duration. Expand
