Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals
In this new review paper prepared for the Endocrine Society on Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDC) the authors review the available data on this growing health problem. The review focused on seven areas which included obesity and diabetes, female reproduction, male reproduction, hormone-sensitive cancers in females, prostate cancer, thyroid, and neurodevelopment and neuroendocrine systems. A cursory look at those areas would clearly associate with some of the most common areas of clinical presentation in any health care practitioners office. This is an enlightening and honest review work and is the most aggressive work of its type in the arena of endocrine disruption via toxicants.
