Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Fifty-nine million Americans are considered obese, and 300,000 die each year from related causes, making this disorder the second-leading U.S. cause of death after smoking. The ever-expanding reach of obesity is leading some scientists to look beyond traditional explanations that implicate genes, diet, and physical activity. At a 20 February 2004 symposium titled Obesity: Developmental Origins and Environmental Influences, cosponsored by the NIEHS and the Duke University Integrated Toxicology Program, presenters discussed data that support the hypothesis that in utero or neonatal exposures to environmental chemicals, notably endocrine disruptors, play a role in the etiology of obesity.
