Abstract

Obesity is increasing globally. Lifestyle and genetic factors alone cannot explain this increase. This review study describes possible associations between environmental chemicals and the growing prevalence of obesity. The review mainly focuses on halogenated organic compounds and their possible effect on obesity development. The literature is, however, limited and knowledge of the mechanisms insufficient. Consequently, it is difficult to describe the risks from these chemicals on obesity development.
