Americans are Getting Fatter Over the Last 20 Years and American Laboratory Animals, Marmosets, Chimpanzees, Vervet Monkeys and Mice, and Domestic Dogs, Domestic Cats, Domestic and Feral Rats (Rural and Urban) are Getting Fatter Too

Posted by Eckhart, MD (Pen Name for Renwin Yee, MD) on

Researcher David Allison at University of Alabama states the American people were getting fatter over the last 20 years. And so were lab macaques, chimps, monkeys, and rural rats and feral rats. Researchers examined 8 different species and found that the average weight has been increasing steadily over the past 20 years. Chimps were doing very badly with a 35% increase of weight per decade. Allison notes that in every population of animals they looked at, their weights went up.

This is perplexing in that lab animal's diets are strictly controlled. The lab animals had no significant change in either activity or diet.

Xenoestrogens, or "FrankenEstrogens" are being implicated in the steady increase of weight of all these animals. Leonardo Trasande at New York University School of Medicine tested BPA levels in the urine in 2,835 American children and teen. High levels of BPA were correlated with a 5 times more likely chance of being obese.

BPA is Bisphenol A. BPA is an additive in plastics and varnishes that prevents breakdown of the plastics. BPA is a xenoestrogens.

Estrogen, in general, tells the body to store up fat for the upcoming pregnancy.

Study Shows Sunscreen Absorbed into the Body at Up to 360 Times More Than FDA Allows

FDA researchers tested 6 main ingredients in sunscreens.  All of these chemicals had concentrations in the blood above the FDA threshold of 0.5 nanograms (ng - a nanogram is a billionth of a gram) per milliliter (mL) of  blood plasma.  These ingredients were above the FDA threshold for seven days AFTER the sunscreens were applied.  Two [...]

Palau Becomes the first country to ban Endocrine Disrupting Toxic Chemicals in Sunscreens

Palau bans "Reef Toxic" Sunscreen Creams.  Palau was once heralded as one of the best places in the world to scuba dive by Jacques Cousteau.  When I was a kid, Jacques Cousteau was my hero.  His undersea videos shown on network TV inspired me to almost go into marine biology.Well, it turns out that minute [...]

Women with High Levels of Phthalates (Chemical Hormone Disruptors) Have Low Sex Drive

Scientists at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine recently found that women the had high levels of an endocrine (hormone) disrupting chemical, phthalate, had a low sex drive. Barrett, the researcher, believes that certain phthalates may lead to decreased sex drive in women. Women that had high levels of a certain phthalate metabolite [...]

National Institute of Environmental Health Web Page on Endocrine Disruptors

I found a website that gives a good overview on endocrine disruptors. The National Institute of Environmental Health (NIEHS) has a nice short page on chemical endocrine disruptors. They report that endocrine disruptors can be found in everyday products including plastic bottles, metal food cans, detergents, flame retardants, food, toys, and pesticides.NIEHS supports studies to determine the correlation [...]

Natural Progesterone Reverses Traumatic Brain Injury - Case Study

Recently, I found this video on using Natural Progesterone for Traumatic Brain Injury. One of my young patients was playing basketball. An opposing team member ran into her, and she had a brain concussion. I found out about the accident several months later. She was still having the effects of the brain injury. [...]
