BACKGROUND: Zinc (Zn) has been suggested to impact fetal growth. However, the effect may be complicated by gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) due to its impacts on fetal growth and placental transport. This study aims at investigating if GDM modifies the association between Zn levels and birth weight. METHOD: A cohort matched by GDM was established in Taiyuan, China between 2012 and 2016, including 752 women with GDM and 744 women without. Dietary Zn intake was assessed during pregnancy. Matern...

Despite a call for better understanding of the role of environmental pollutant influences on mental health and the tremendous public health burden of mental health, this issue receives far less attention than many other effects of pollutants. Here we summarize the body of literature on non-occupational environmental pollutant exposures and adult depression, anxiety, and suicide—in PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, and PsychINFO through the end of year 2018. One hundred twelve articles met our crit...

Discovering pathophysiologic networks in a blood-based approach may help to generate valuable tools for early treatment or preventive measures in autism. To date targeted or untargeted metabolomics approaches to identify metabolic features and pathways affecting fetal neurodevelopment have rarely been applied to pregnancy samples, that is, an early period potentially relevant for the development of autism spectrum disorders (ASD). We conducted a population-based study relying on autism diagnoses...

Introduction: To date, the evidence for an association between perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) exposure and attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is inconclusive. Objective: We inves...

BACKGROUND: Per organic pollutants and endocrine disruptors. High doses of perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) exposure can cause pregnancy loss and infant deaths in animals, but the associations between PFAS exposures and risk of miscarriage in humans are not well studied. METHODS: Using a case-control study nested within the Danish National Birth Cohort (DNBC, 1996-2002), we compared 220 pregnancies ending in miscarriage during weeks 12-22 of gestation, with 2...

Importance: Advanced parental age has been associated with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) in children. However, little is known about the association between grandparental age at the time of birth of the parent and the risk of ASD in the grandchildren. Objective: To estimate the associations between parental and grandparental age and ASD risk in children. Design, Setting, and Participants: This population-based, multigenerational cohort study used data from Danish national health registries. A...

Abstract Sleep disorders, oftentimes co-occurring with other mental and neurological disorders in the elderly, have been previously linked to short-term exposures to air pollution. Here we assessed such associations among 395,651 elderly Chinese in Ningbo, China where air pollution exposures are high and the proportion of elderly in the population is growing. We utilized a regional health information database in China (2008–2017) that collected information on hospital visits for sleep disorders ...

Design Population based cohort study. Setting Danish national health registries. Participants All 2 432 000 liveborn children without congenital heart disease in Denmark during 1977-2016. Follow-up began at birth and continued until first time diagnosis of CVD, death, emigration, or 31 Dec...

Sustained and inadequately controlled hypertension can promote the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) through multiple biologic pathways. Epidemiologic studies of high blood pressure, antihypertensive therapies, and the risk of AMD thus far have been inconclusive. However, few studies evaluated risks according to the use of different classes of antihypertensive drugs or took combinations of use into account. We performed a prospective cohort study by linking the California Tea...
