1. Paunescu AC, et al. (2013). Nituuchischaayihtitaau Aschii Multi-community Environment- and Health Longitudinal Study in Eeyou Istchee Our results show that an increase in plasma concentrations of dioxin-like polychlorinated biphenyls 105 and 118 was negatively associated with stiffness index, a measure of bone quality-strength, in women of this population. 2,3,3',4,4',5-hexachlorobiphenyl | 2,3,3',4,4'-pentachlorobiphenyl | 2,3',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl | Dioxins and Dioxin-like Compounds | Lead | Mercury | Selenium Study subjects Canada blood | plasma 2,3,3',4,4',5-hexachlorobiphenyl | 2,3,3',4,4'-pentachlorobiphenyl | 2,3',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl | Dioxins and Dioxin-like Compounds | Lead | Mercury | Selenium Details Osteoporosis | regulation of bone mineralization
2. Kanagawa Y, et al. (2008). Yusho Study Group After Yusho patients had suffered chronic exposure to these chlorinated compounds for more than 35 years, the serum concentration of 2,3,4,7,8-PeCDF in blood was significantly related to arthralgia and decreased albumin/globulin ratio; the serum concentration of polychlorinated biphenyls was significantly related to ophthalmologic symptoms; and the serum concentration of polychlorinated quarterphenyl to increased total cholesterol. 2,3,4,7,8-pentachlorodibenzofuran | Polychlorinated Biphenyls Japan Details Arthralgia | Eye Diseases | Hematologic Diseases

4. Noonan CW, et al. (2006). In a case-control study of Libby, Montana (a community with historical occupational and environmental exposure to asbestos-contaminated vermiculite), our preliminary findings support the hypothesis that asbestos exposure is associated with systemic autoimmune diseases.

6. Choi WJ, et al. (2015). Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES) In the present study, using a representative sample of the Korean population, we investigated the association between environmental cadmium exposure and osteoporosis in aged males, considering the obesity status. disease Cadmium Controls for disease:Obesity | Subjects with disease:Obesity Korea, Republic of blood Cadmium Details Osteoporosis
7. Swaddiwudhipong W, et al. (2015). Persons living in (cadmium) contaminated areas had a significantly higher prevalence of renal dysfunction, bone mineral loss, hypertension and urinary stones than those living in non-contaminated areas. There were no significant differences between the 2 groups in the prevalence of diabetes, hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia.

8. Gilboa SM, et al. (2005). A population-based case-control study investigated the association between maternal exposure to air pollutants, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, sulfur dioxide, and particulate matter <10 microns in aerodynamic diameter during weeks 3-8 of pregnancy and the risk of selected cardiac birth defects and oral clefts in livebirths and fetal deaths between 1997 and 2000 in seven Texas counties. sex Carbon Monoxide | Nitrogen Dioxide | Ozone | Particulate Matter | Sulfur Dioxide Children United States Details Cleft Lip | Cleft Palate | Conotruncal cardiac defects | Endocardial Cushion Defects | Heart Septal Defects, Atrial | Heart Septal Defects, Ventricular | Tetralogy of Fallot
9. Parks CG, et al. (2016). Agricultural Health Study (AHS) Our results suggest that specific agricultural pesticides, solvents, and chemical fertilizers may increase the risk of rheumatoid arthritis in women, while exposures involving animal contact may be protective.

10. Amin R, et al. (2017). We find that gadolinium use during pregnancy is unlikely to be associated with adverse effects in infants during the neonatal period.

11. Côté S, et al. (2006). Overall we found little evidence that organochlorines exposure is related to osteoporosis in Greenlandic Inuit women, but the hypothesis that exposure to dioxin-like compounds might be linked to decreased bone quality and osteoporosis deserves further attention.

12. Khalil N, et al. (2016). National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) In a representative sample of the U.S. adult population, serum perfluoroalkyl substance (PFAS) concentrations were associated with lower bone mineral density, which varied according to the specific PFAS and bone site assessed. sex Lead | perfluorohexanesulfonic acid | perfluorononanoic acid | perfluorooctane sulfonic acid | perfluorooctanoic acid Study subjects United States blood | serum Lead | perfluorohexanesulfonic acid | perfluorononanoic acid | perfluorooctane sulfonic acid | perfluorooctanoic acid Details Osteoporosis | bone mineralization
13. Saha H, et al. (2016). From these results, we can conclude that chronic exposure to biomass smoke increased membrane-bound and soluble RANKL and circulating osteoclast precursors but decreased OPG, suggesting an increased risk of bone resorption and consequent osteoporosis in biomass-exposed women of a child-bearing age.
