    Hum Mol Genet 21:1504-12. 2012
    ..However, by 7 years, no associations were observed with the maternal genotype. This suggested that the children's FA levels were related only to their own metabolism with no apparent lasting influences of the in utero environment...
  2. ncbi request reprint Socio-demographic characteristics of UK families using pesticides and weed-killers
    Colin D Steer
    Community Based Medicine, University of Bristol, Bristol, UK
    J Expo Sci Environ Epidemiol 16:251-63. 2006
    ..They have also helped in identifying the important confounders for adjusting future analyses on the potential health consequences of pesticides and weed-killers...
  3. pmc Traits contributing to the autistic spectrum
    Colin D Steer
    Social and Community Medicine, University of Bristol, Bristol, United Kingdom
    PLoS ONE 5:e12633. 2010
    ..It is increasingly recognised that traits associated with autism reflect a spectrum with no clear boundary between typical and atypical behaviour. Dimensional traits are needed to investigate the broader autism phenotype...
  4. pmc FADS2 polymorphisms modify the effect of breastfeeding on child IQ
    Colin D Steer
    Centre for Child and Adolescent Health, Department of Community Based Medicine, University of Bristol, Bristol, UK
    PLoS ONE 5:e11570. 2010
    ..A study by Caspi et al has suggested that rs174575 within the FADS2 gene moderates this effect so that children homozygous in the minor allele (GG genotype) have similar IQs irrespective of feeding method...
  5. pmc Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) C677T polymorphism is associated with spinal BMD in 9-year-old children
    Colin D Steer
    Department of Community Based Medicine, University of Bristol, Bristol, United Kingdom
    J Bone Miner Res 24:117-24. 2009
    ..To the extent that these findings reflect known influences of C677T MTHFR genotype on plasma homocysteine levels, our results suggest that the latter is an important regulator of spinal BMD in childhood...

    Department of Social Medicine, University of Bristol, Bristol, United Kingdom
    Am J Clin Nutr 84:739-47. 2006

    Jon H Tobias
    University of Bristol, UK
    J Bone Miner Res 22:101-9. 2007
    ..Physical activity was positively related to both BMD and bone size in fully adjusted models. However, further exploration revealed that this effect on bone size was modified by fat mass...
