Abstract Obesity as determined by BMI is a confounder in clinical evaluations of the effects of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). Validated regulatory tests are used to determine whether a chemical acts via a mode of action (MOA) that affects estrogen, androgen, thyroid or steroidogenic pathways. Test batteries for evaluating EDCs include QSAR, in vitro assays, and animal testing. Studies suggest that EDCs pose the greatest risk during prenatal and early infant development when organ systems are developing. Health effects include lowered fertility, endometriosis, and cancers associated with estrogenic activit...

Conclusion: MEB is a common condition responsible for many premature discontinuations of HBO2. Its origin is multifactorial, associating non-modifiable and modifiable factors. Better management of this affection will further contribute to making HBO2 a low-risk treatment. PMID: 32574438 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: CHEK2 variants may predispose to a range of endocrine glands tumors, including those identified in our patient. Multiple endocrine glands tumors, as in the presented patient, are a serious problem of public health, due to numerous hospitalizations and necessary repeated surgical treatments. Moreover, the association between CHEK2 and ovarian cancer can be a serious problem with reproductive health.

Authors: Park JH, Choi M, Kim JH, Kim J, Kim B, Han KD, Park YG, Kim DH Abstract BACKGROUND: The association of metabolic syndrome and its components with the risk of thyroid cancer is unclear. Thus, we conducted a large-scale, nationwide, population-based, cohort study to investigate this relationship. METHODS: We studied 9,890,917 adults without thyroid cancer from the Korean National Health Insurance health checkup database from January 1 to December 31, 2009. Individuals with at least three of five components were diagnosed with metabolic syndrome: abdominal obesity, hypertriglyceridemia, low high-density l...

This study is not a warning of a scary new epidemic of problems arriving with next year’s babies. Instead, it’s a peak behind the curtain at what might be the hidden story behind the marvelous kids we already see on today’s playgrounds across the country. Most are very healthy – among the healthiest kids in history. Yes, too many are overweight. Too many have asthma. Too many have allergies. Too many have learning problems. Too many start puberty early. More than half have some chronic illness. But this isn’t slowing kids down as much as the devastating infectious diseases of the past. It is a...

Discussion Galactorrhea is a milky discharge from the breast in a non-lactating female. Neonatal galactorrhea is sometimes called “Witch’s Milk” based on ideas from the 17th century or earlier that witches would steal the milk for use in their magic. Infant breasts were often compressed to express the fluid and prevent its collection. During the 19th century, reports of breast inflammation and even abscess were reported because of this practice and it was strongly discouraged, and continues to not be recommended today. Enlargement of neonatal breasts and galactorrhea, both for males and females, is fel...

CONCLUSIONS: Greater risk of BRAF-mutated papillary thyroid cancers among those with high BMI suggests that the association may not merely reflect greater healthcare service use and indicates an independent relationship between obesity and clinically important thyroid cancer.
