    The World Health Organization estimated that each year there are more than 13 million deaths caused by environmental causes. Exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) during development may cause long-term health outcomes. This book, Endocrine Disruptors, includes eight chapters that illustrate potential endocrine-disrupting activities in water, sediments, . The theory of endocrine disruptors gained credibility from a number of studies demonstrating reproductive problems in wildlife exposed to certain environmental chemicals. For example, alligators exposed to an organochlorine pesticide, diclofol experienced various reproductive abnormalities. [3].

    Environmental contaminants called endocrine disruptors (EDs), a diverse group of chemicals and heavy metals, are nowwidely reported to affect the reproductive and developmental health of animals, experimental as well as wild, and are considered to be the developmental basis of many diseases, including obesity in humans.   Information on endocrine disruptors, including answers to frequently asked questions, factsheets, additional resources, and related health topics, from a federal institute that investigates the interplay between environmental exposures, human biology, genetics, and common diseases to help prevent disease and improve human health. Endocrine disruptors are chemical compounds that, among other harmful effects, cause birth defects in humans and animals. They include DES, an anti-nausea drug used in the s during pregnancy, and may be found in over 70 common chemicals ranging from pesticides to plastics. This book looks at recent developments in the area and examines screening/monitoring .

    Endocrine Disruptors. A growing body of evidence suggests that. numerous chemicals, both natural and man-made, may interfere with the endocrine system and produce adverse effects in laboratory animals, wildlife, and humans. Scientists often refer to these chemicals as “endocrine disruptors.” Endocrine disruption is an important public. Studies of endocrine disruptors have shown that they are closely associated with all of the following except _____. Lung cancer You decide to greatly reduce the amount of chemical fertilizers you use in your landscape and rely more on mulching and imposting. Endocrine Disruption EPA implements screening, testing and research programs to gather information the Agency uses to evaluate possible endocrine effects associated with the use of a chemical. EPA takes appropriate steps to mitigate any related risks to ensure protection of public health and the environment.
