The Institute of Medicine’s (IOM’s) Roundtable on Environmental Health Sciences, Research, and Medicine is hosting a March 2-3, 2015, workshop in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, to discuss the “interplay between environmental exposures and obesity.” Topics of discussion will include the alleged links “between exposure to environmental chemicals and increased incidence of weight gain, glucose intolerance and insulin sensitivity, inflammation, and aspects of metabolic syndrome in animal models and human studies.” March 3 sessions will target the potential roles of antibiotics, high-fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners as well as potential policy solutions to address reducing chemical exposures associated with the development of obesity.
