CHICAGO vans old skool womens size 5 , Nov. 15 (Xinhua) -- Exposure to the phytoestrogen genistein prior to conception may adversely affect female fertility and pregnancy outcomes, depending on the dosage and duration of exposure, a study of the University of Illinois (UI) found.


UI researchers found that chronic preconception exposure to genistein affected pregnancy rates in mice and was associated with prolonged labor, smaller litters and pups, and higher rates of pup mortality.


For the study, the researchers fed adult female mice a diet containing 300, 500 or 1 vans old skool pro navy ,000 parts per million of genistein, while their counterparts in the control group consumed food that was soy- and phytoestrogen-free. The groups of mice that consumed genistein were exposed to it for 30, 60, 150 or 240 days, which produced blood serum concentrations equivalent to those found in women who consume soy foods or supplements.


"When we looked at animals exposed for 30 days, the gestation time, the length of time they were pregnant vans old skool pro uk , was decreased, similar to premature births," said Jodi Flaws, a professor of comparative biosciences at UI and a co-author of the study. "And after 60 days' exposure, they had fewer pups in their litters."


After 150 days, the mice that consumed 500 ppm or 1000 ppm of genistein were less likely to become pregnant after mating. Only 83 percent of the females in either of those groups were fertile, the researchers found.


After 240 treatment days vans old skool burgundy , only 50 percent of mice in the 300-ppm group were fertile compared with 67 percent of those in the control group.


While mice in the 240-day treatment group that gave birth bore normalized litters, they often killed their pups, and the pups were much smaller than peers of similar age.


Although the findings are preliminary, the researchers said that little is known about the potential effects of long-term phytoestrogen use, and women should be cautious about their exposure, especially if they plan to conceive in the near future.


The findings add to a growing body of research that raises troubling questions about the potential health risks of long-term exposure to plant-based estrogens. Genistein is an isoflavone found in soy foods and dietary supplements, and vans old skool canvas trainers , like other plant estrogens, may be consumed by women to relieve menopausal conditions such as hot flashes, weight gain and depression.


The study has been accepted for publication in the journal Reproductive Toxicology.

NAIROBI, May 8 (Xinhua) -- When double 800m Olympic and world champion David Rudisha of Kenya lines up on the track at Shanghai Diamond League meeting on May 13, only one thing will matter, make a strong start.


Rudisha leads a horde of other elite runners, who will be making their maiden show in the 2017 season vans old skool black leather , with hope that their first step off the blocks will be strong enough to push them through to the London World Championships in August.


Rudisha said his purpose in Shanghai will not be about winning, but what challenge his body will face as he lays down the gauntlet in defence of the world title in three months' time.


"It's not the triumph but the struggle that matters. How you train, your focus and target are crucial and that is what interests me. I want to do well in Shanghai, they have great fans in China," Rudisha said on Monday from Eldoret.


Indeed over four years ago, Rudisha clearly remembers that he injured his knee while training in New York and was forced to forfeit his title defence at the 2013 Moscow World Championships.


He endured a knee surgery and sat out for 12 months without competitive action. His return in late 2014 showed a man who was a pale shadow of the great champion.


A haunted figure as he struggled that season with three race defeats, one of which he finished last of the pack.


But he has slowly built his strength black vans old skool , changing his running tactics to win both in Beijing 2015 World Championships and in Rio Olympics.


"I'm really happy with my progress," he said. "The win in Beijing meant a lot to me. I went to China not in the best of fitness. I wasn't at the top of the world, I wasn't the favourite. I was an underdog. That worked on my side as I had little pressure. People were not focusing on me but the other guys. I sneaked in without a lot of pressure."
