A study of 145 preschool children reports, for the first time, that when the concentrations of two common phthalates in mothers' prenatal urine are elevated their sons are less likely to play with male-typical toys and games, such as trucks and play fighting. The University of Rochester Medical Center-led study is published in the International Journal of Andrology. Because testosterone produces the masculine brain, researchers are concerned that fetal exposure to anti-androgens such as...

The researchers, led by Dr. Shanna Swan, asked mothers who had participated in a previous, and much publicized, study of phthalate exposure to evaluate the play habits of their...

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- In the past few years, consumers have had growing concerns about the health risks associated with plastic products, specifically those with Bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates. But, BPA and phthalates are only two of hundreds of chemicals that can leach from plastics and cause estrogenic activity (EA), which is a common and serious form of endocrine disruption.

The active ingredient in many insect repellents, N,N-Diethyl-3-methylbenzamide, known as DEET, may harm the central nervous system, French researchers said. Vincent Corbel from the Institut de Recherche pour le Developpement in Montpellier and Bruno Lapied of the University of Angers, both in France, led a team of researchers that investigated the toxicity of DEET. We've found that DEET is not simply a behavior-modifying chemical but also inhibits the activity of a key central nervous...

A study released on Wednesday warned that one of the world's most common insect repellents acts on the central nervous system in the same way as some insecticides and nerve gases, AFP reported. Researchers say moderate use of the chemical compound deet is most likely safe, but experiments on insects, as well as on enzymes extracted from mice and human neurons, showed for the first time that it can interfere with the proper functioning of the nervous system. Many experts are urgently calling...

Thyroid And Parathyroid Glands
2013-03-04 13:34:45

The thyroid gland is an endocrine gland located anterior to the trachea and inferior to the thyroid cartilage. It is butterfly shaped with three lobes that make it the largest endocrine organ in the body. Its primary function is to control the body’s metabolism by regulating how quickly the body uses energy, proteins, and hormones. The two lateral lobes are connected by the middle lobe called the isthmus, which lies directly on top of the trachea. The entire gland is enclosed in a...
