The term "environmental estrogen" refers to chemical substances that exhibit some degree of estrogen-like activity. The primary emphasis for potential adverse effects resulting from exposure to environmental estrogens is on in utero exposure because such exposure can occur during critical periods of organogenesis. Assessment of biological plausibility can be based, in part, on the extensive data on the effects of diethylstilbestrol (DES). The available evidence is too limited to judge with any…

Human health implications of exposure to xenoestrogens from food.

The level of exposure determined in this thesis would seem to be of pharmacological relevance, especially for men with low levels of estrogen and for post-menopausal women.

SOY MEN ’ S HEALTH

There is a large amount of evidence suggesting adding soyfoods to the diet can greatly benefit men by reducing the risk of prostate cancer and heart disease, and there is also very preliminary evidence that consuming soyFoods might protect against male pattern baldness.

GENISTEIN INDUCED ALTERATIONS OF THE TESTICULAR BIOCHEMISTRY AND HISTOMORPHOLOGY OF ADULT MALE MICE, MUS MUSCULUS.

Genistein may lead to reproductive insufficiency in adult male mice, in terms of lesser availability of mature spermatozoa, and the alterations observed may be under the direct influence of testosterone and unavailability of the gonadotropins or may be via hypothalamohypophysial testicular axis.

EFFECT OF EXOGENOUS ESTROGEN ON SEXUAL BEHAVIOR OF KUNDHI BUFFALO BULL

It was concluded that the exogenous estrogens has little impact on sexual behavior in experimental animals, and results indicate that the administrated exogenous estrogen might be utilized by the estrogen receptors present in brain and other various tissue of the body which result in stimulation of sexual excitement.

SOYFOODS MAY OFFER SIGNIFICANT HEALTH BENEFITS TO MEN, SUCH AS LOWERING THE RISK OF PROSTATE CANCER, HEART DISEASE AND MORE. AS THIS FACT SHEET WILL DISCUSS, MEN NEED NOT FEAR THE RISK OF FEMINIZATION

Effect of Exogenous Diethylstilbestrol on Semen Quality of Kundhi Buffalo Bull

It was concluded that the administration of exogenous estrogens in buffalo bull has no or little impact in the improvement of semen quality and resulted in decline of serum estrogen level bulls.

Towards a New SPE Material for EDCs: Fully Automated Synthesis of a Library of Tripodal Receptors Followed by Fast Screening by Affinity LC

A series of human estrogen receptor (hER) mimics were synthesised by using a fully automated solid-phase synthesis protocol and Affinity towards estrogenic compounds was checked by affinity LC.

The Air Force is conducting a 20-year prospective study of veterans of Operation Ranch Hand, the unit responsible for aerial spraying of herbicides in Vietnam from 1962 to 1971 to determine whether exposure to the herbicides or their contaminant, 2,3,37,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin ( dioxin), has adversely affected the health, survival or reproductive outcomes of Ranch Hands.
