Environmental Factors May Also Lead to Endometriosis(2)

Koninckx et al. reported that the incidence and severity of endometriosis in Belgian women are the highest in the world. The incidence of endometriosis in Belgian women with clinical manifestations of infertility and chronic pelvic pain is 6o-8o, and the concentration of dioxin in the blood is significantly higher than that in non-endometriosis. These are consistent with the serious pollution of dioxin and other environmental toxins in the country.
Mayani, an Israeli scholar, also confirmed that endometriosis is related to the increase of dioxin concentration. They found that TCDD concentration in the blood of women with endometriosis and nonpregnant women was significantly higher than that of women with tubal infertility, which indirectly explained the correlation between the occurrence of endometriosis and dioxin.
Dioxin is not only related to the pathogenesis of endometriosis but also has been found to promote the development of endometriosis. Endometriosis is a common disease that seriously affects women's physical and mental health. Its incidence rate is increasing gradually. And the more and more serious environmental toxins, dioxins and endosperm, are at least partly explained. However, the exact relationship between the two needs further study.
