Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are chemicals that mimic, block, or interfere with hormones in the body's endocrine system. They are linked to health problems related to fertility and pregnancy, including development, reproduction, and more.
The effect of endocrine disruptors on wildlife is well-documented. They can contaminate soil, air, and water and affect wildlife.
Endocrine disruptors in humans have been associated with a diverse array of health issues, and there’s mounting evidence that even low doses of EDCs may be unsafe.
