Studies that attempted to isolate a pathway through stratification or adjustment in multivariable models and/or studies with both biological and environmental measurements, such as CHAMACOS, For Healthy Kids, the University of Washington studies, and the Iowa farm family exposure study, provided the most information on the relative importance of pathways.
Comparison of current-use pesticide and other toxicant urinary metabolite levels among pregnant women in the CHAMACOS cohort and NHANES.
studies have also revealed links between flame retardant concentrations in mothers' blood and decreased fertility, lower birthweight babies and changes in thyroid hormone levels, even after controlling for exposure to pesticides and other environmental chemicals.
We acknowledge the CHAMACOS participants and families, without whom this study would not have been possible.
Characteristics of study population, CHAMACOS study, Salinas Valley, CA, 1999-2000 (n = 442).
Results of logistic regression models for associations of in utero DDT and DDE exposure with childhood obesity, overweight or obesity, and waist circumference at 7 years, CHAMACOS, 2007-2008.
The CHAMACOS study is a longitudinal birth cohort study of the effects of pesticide and other environmental exposures on the health of pregnant women and their children living in the Salinas Valley, an agricultural region in California.
We evaluated potential obesogenic effects of in utero and postnatal exposure to PBDE in the CHAMACOS longitudinal birth cohort through 7 years of age.
Factors associated with serum polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) levels among school-age children in the CHAMACOS cohort.
We thank the CHAMACOS
staff, students, community partners, and participants and families, without whom this study would not be possible.
