Abstract Endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) are heterogenous in structure and include synthetic organic compounds such as pharmaceutical agents, plant protection products, plastics, plasticizers, polychlorinated biphenyls, dioxins, flame-retardants, and antifoulant paint additive, as well, as natural plant-derived EDCs termed phytoestrogens and mycoestrogens. Children and adults are exposed daily to EDCs during drinking contaminated water, eating, breathing polluted air or direct contact with chemicals. Prenatal and perinatal period, infancy, childhood, and puberty are critical time of development during which ...

I was browsing the internet one day and came across a photo of a group of women who appeared educated and influential. They were wearing blue T-shirts with claims that vaccines cause autoimmune diseases, seizures, ADHD or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, learning disabilities, death, autism, sudden infant death syndrome and infertility. I couldn’t help but laugh at them! I shared this photo on my Facebook page. To my surprise, one of my educated friends shared her concern about vaccinations and declared that she had withheld immunization from her own children. I decided to write this paper for young women li...

Infertility has long-term effects beyond the inability to conceive. Infertility may be a harbinger of future disease and altered longevity. Understanding the mechanisms of how fertility is a window to health opens new avenues of important investigation addressing interdependent physiologic processes. Identification of healthy persons at risk for future cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or cancer could allow a change in reproductive medical care by altering long-term surveillance and reduction of risk.

Most mainstream doctors believe that polycystic ovary syndrome, PCOS, is a disease. PCOS is, after all, associated with markedly increased risk for type 2 diabetes, hypertension, endometrial cancer, and heart disease, in addition to outward signs that include excessive facial and body hair, tendency to being overweight or obese, irregular menstrual cycles, infertility. A crisis of self esteem commonly and understandably results. Mainstream doctors tell you to not worry because they have plenty of prescription drugs to “treat” it, not to mention various hormones, fertility procedures, and gastric bypass. PCOS is...

One of the commonest questions which patients ask me is - What ispolycystic ovariandisease (or PCO, also known as PCOD and PCOS? ) And what are its risks ?This has now become a very common diagnosis, and is made by gynecologists, dietitians, skin specialists and GPs as well. The diagnosis is made typically for young girls, who are worried because they irregular periods; are a little bit overweight; or have acne or some oily skin. Doctors order a panel of expensive blood tests ( which measure hormones levels such as FSH, LH, DHEA, testosterone and AMH), and these often turn out to be abnormal in these girls.The problem...

Diabetes Mellitus (DM) can induce long-term damages, dysfunctions and failures of various organs, including male reproductive system. Previous studies showed the impact of DM on semen parameters, nuclear DNA fragmentation and chromatin quality. Conversely, the association between prediabetes (pDM), a precursor to diabetes characterised by impaired fasting glucose or tolerance, and reproductive function has been scantly analyzed.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), is a common reproductive disorder with a variety of clinical manifestations such as menstrual irregularities, signs of androgen excess, and infertility but more so a multifaceted syndrome with its metabolic complications related to insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is an important feature of the syndrome that underlies many endocrine conditions and is associated with multiple metabolic disorders such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension, lipid abnormalities and cardiovascular disease.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a common reproductive disorder with a variety of clinical manifestations such as menstrual irregularities, signs of androgen excess, and infertility, is now considered not only as an endocrine disorder but also as a complex, multifaceted syndrome with substantial long-term health implications and several adverse metabolic, cardiovascular alterations including metabolic syndrome, obesity, dyslipidemia, insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus and coronary artery disease risks in the life span.
