* This news is based on the following article: Vafeiadi M, Georgiou V, Chalkiadaki G, et al.Association of prenatal exposure to persistent organic pollutants with obesity and cardiometabolic traits in early childhood: The Rhea mother-child cohort (Crete, Greece). Environ Health Perspect 2015; 123: 1015-21.doi: 10.1289/ehp.1409062

This is the first study to examine the effects in young children of prenatal exposure to persistent organic pollutants (POPs) on a range of cardiometabolic risk factors. Low intrauterine exposure levels to two organochlorine pesticides seem to increase both adiposity and blood pressure.
