Arsenic exposure linked to early puberty, obesity

August 29, 2015

Exposure to low levels of arsenic through drinking water in utero resulted in signs of early puberty and obesity as adults in female mice, according to recent findings.

“We unexpectedly found that exposure to arsenic before birth had a profound effect on onset of puberty and incidence of obesity later in life,” Humphrey Yao, PhD, a reproductive biologist at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), said in the release. “Although these mice were exposed to arsenic only during fetal life, the impacts lingered through adulthood.”
