That pollution is negative in every way is obvious, that has a proven impact on respiratory problems or occurrences of tumors, and from INMA we have referred in more than one occasion to the problems of obesity derived from pollution, which adversely affects the fetal stage and infancy. Recently, the Center for Biomedical Research Network, Pathophysiology of Obesity and Nutrition (CIBERobn) has released several studies relating to this topic.
Presence of Nicolas Olea
This compendium of studies echoed the journalist Jaime Prats in El Pais, which required observations of Nicolas Olea. Steering Committee Member INMA, Dr. Olea, recently awarded by the WWF Spain in the category of Knowledge for Conservation, Dr. Olea discusses the relationship between environmental pollution and overweight. There is talk of persistent organic compounds, chemicals with high resistentecia to degradation, which are concentrated in the fat-and seudopersistentes compounds.
In the article ‘The Country’ we read that in this group are “phthalates, used in industry as softeners of plastics, benzophenones, present in the UV filters in sunscreens, parabens, which are used to extend expiration of cosmetic products such as shampoos, or bisphenol A (BPA) found in plastics (polycarbonate and epoxy resins). ”
Influence on fetal and childhood
Nicolás Olea remember that the exposition to these compounds “at certain times of development to inadequate levels, especially in the fetal stage and infancy, influence both obesity and diabetes.”
Researchers studying these studies summarized by saying that these compounds fat and sick. And, as noted by Jaime Prats, link two closely related disorders with diabetes: the metabolic syndrome (“a set of risk factors including abdominal obesity, hyperglycemia and high blood pressure who have 31% of the adult Spanish population”) and insulin resistance.
However, as explicaJavier Salvador, president of the Spanish Society of Endocrinology and Nutrition (SEEN), contaminants environments are another factor that must be added others, such as genetics, diet is carried, the greater or less stress who have to endure or exercise being performed.
