Controversies in Thyroidology: The Urgent Threat of Thyroid and Other Hormone-Disrupting Chemicals to Our Health and Future …and What Can We Do About It

 

Faculty: Leonardo Trasande MD, MPP

 

Program Description: Since the report of Herbst and Bern of cancer in young girls exposed to the pharmaceutical diethylstilbestrol in utero, rapidly accumulating evidence suggests that a broader range of synthetic chemicals disrupt hormonal function and thereby contribute to disease and disability across the lifespan.  This evidence has been codified in reports by the Endocrine Society, the International Federation of Gynecologists and Obstetricians, the United Nations Environment Program and the World Health Organization.  Studies in humans show remarkable consistency and affirm initial laboratory studies, particularly for neurodevelopmental toxicity of flame retardant and pesticide exposures, obesity and diabetes as well as male and female reproductive conditions.  The costs of these exposure have been documented to be 163 billion Euro/year in Europe and $340 billion/year in the US.  Exposures to these EDCs are preventable, with health and economic benefits that are substantial and may outweigh the costs of safer alternatives.

Leonardo Trasande Related seminars and products: 2


Leonardo Trasande, MD, MPP is an internationally renowned leader in environmental health.  His research focuses on identifying the role of environmental exposures in childhood obesity and cardiovascular risks and documenting the economic costs for policy makers of failing to prevent diseases of environmental origin in children proactively.  He also holds appointments in the Wagner School of Public Service and NYU’s College of Global Public Health.  He is perhaps best known for a series of studies published in Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology and the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism that document disease costs due to endocrine disrupting chemicals in the US and Europe of $340 billion and €163 billion annually, respectively. Dr. Trasande leads one of 35 centers across the country as part of the National Institute of Health’s Environmental Influences on Child Health Outcomes program.  He is leveraging the NYU Children’s Health and Environment Study as well as another birth cohort to examine phthalates, bisphenols, organophosphate pesticides and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and their effects on fetal as well as postnatal growth and early cardiovascular and renal risks.  These two cohorts are part of a larger initiative nationally to identify preventable and environmental factors that influence child health and disease. After receiving his bachelor, medical and public policy degrees from Harvard, he completed the Boston Combined Residency in Pediatrics and a legislative fellowship in the Office of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.
