Huixiao Hong Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) can mimic natural hormone to interact with receptors in the endocrine system and thus disrupt the functions of the endocrine system, raising concerns on the public health. In addition to disruption of the endocrine system, some EDCs have been found associated with many diseases such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, infertility, asthma, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, obesity, and diabetes mellitus. EDCs that binding androgen receptor have been reported associated with diabetes mellitus in in vitro, animal, and clinical studies. In this review, we summarize the st...

Background: Asthma has been linked with prolonged time to pregnancy, but our knowledge of asthma and infertility is limitedObjective: To explore a possible association between asthma and infertilityMethods: All pregnant women referred to Hvidovre Hospital (HVH) have been offered enrolment into the Management of Asthma during Pregnancy (MAP) program since 2007. Pregnant women were eligible for the present study provided they had a diagnosis of asthma and had their first visit to the respiratory outpatient clinic within the first 18 weeks of pregnancy (cases). Controls were the three consecutive women giving birth at HVH. In...

Environmental exposures are becoming increasingly recognized as important contributors to health. Over the last decade, a significant number of studies have examined the relationship between ambient air and traffic-related air pollution and the incidence of asthma, cardiovascular disease, and reproductive outcomes. Proximity to major roadways has recently been shown to impact time to pregnancy and infertility rates.1 We sought to determine if residential proximity to in-state major U.S. highways and interstates impacts IVF outcomes.

Conclusion: To address the many challenges posed by EDCs, we argue that Africans should take the lead in prioritization and evaluation of environmental hazards, including EDCs. We recommend the institution of education and training programs for chemical users, adoption of the precautionary principle, establishment of biomonitoring programs, and funding of community-based epidemiology and wildlife research programs led and funded by African institutes and private companies. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1774 Received: 16 February 2017 Revised: 22 May 2017 Accepted: 24 May 2017 Published: 22 August 2017 Address correspond...

Conclusions: These results demonstrate the possibility to predict large-scale mixture effects for endocrine disrupters with a predictive toxicology approach that is suitable for high-throughput ranking and risk assessment. The size of the effects predicted is consistent with an increased risk of infertility in women from everyday exposures to our chemical environment. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP742 Received: 30 June 2016 Revised: 07 December 2016 Accepted: 24 February 2017 Published: 19 July 2017 Address correspondence to F.Y.
