Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals: Effects on Mothers, and Interactions with Lifestyle
During this webinar Alyssa Merrill will discuss how pregnancy is a critical window for the effects of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) on maternal endocrine and metabolic health. Epidemiological studies indicate that pregnancy is a critical window for EDC exposures, and in support, her animal models indicate EDC exposures during pregnancy reduce estradiol and induce metabolic dysregulation across the maternal lifespan.
Dr. Jessica Hartman will discuss how diet and exercise are modifiers of metabolism and chemical toxicity. Lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise have a dramatic impact on metabolism and alter how an individual will respond to EDC and other chemical exposures. She will discuss ongoing projects studying the intersection of organismal metabolism and chemical exposures, with a special focus on neuronal health.
