NCI Well Connect Mid-Week Brief
September 28, 2016
Dear Steve, 

DID YOU KNOW that a Gallup-poll recently released about Americans' perceptions of chiropractic found that nearly two-thirds of U.S. adults report having had neck or back pain significant enough that they saw a health care professional at some point in their lives? About three in four of these adults describe the treatment they received as "very effective." Eighty-eight percent of recent chiropractic patients agree the quality of care they received was a good value for the money.

Unlikely Source Depletes Vitamin D
Bonnie and Steve: Exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) and other endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) reduce levels of vitamin D in the bloodstream, according to a study from Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

The study is the first to find an association between EDC exposure and vitamin D levels in a large group of U.S. adults.

EDCs are chemicals or mixtures of chemicals that can cause adverse health effects by interfering with hormones in the body. Nearly every person on the planet is exposed to BPA and another class of endocrine-disrupting chemicals called phthalates, so the possibility that these chemicals may even slightly reduce vitamin D levels has widespread implications for public health.

EDCs are found in everyday products and throughout the environment. There are more than 85,000 manufactured chemicals, of which thousands may be EDCs.

4,667 adults provided blood samples so their vitamin D levels could be measured over a five year period. To measure EDC exposure, the participants had their urine analyzed for substances left behind after the body metabolized phthalates and BPA.

The study found people who were exposed to larger amounts of EDCs were more likely to have low levels of vitamin D in the bloodstream than the participants who were exposed to smaller amounts of the EDCs. The link was strongest in women because women produce and house more estrogen than men. EDCs are estrogen-producing chemicals.
