Endocrine Disruption

Endocrine disruptors are found in many products of everyday life such as plastics (Bisphenol A), herbicides and paper (Dioxins), pharmaceuticals, fireworks, and drinking water (Perchlorate), firefighting foams and textiles (Perfluoroalkyls and Polyfluoroalkyls), Cosmetics (Phtalats), Plant-based products such as tofu (Phytoestrogens), flame retardants and furniture foams (polychlorinated diphenyl ethers), transformers (Polychlorinated biphenyls) and personal care products (Triclosan), to name only a few. They affect and disrupt normal endocrine function leading to an imbalanced hormone household. Already small changes in hormone concentration can have a fatal impact on organisms, leading to severe diseases, such as neurodegenerative diseases. Therefore, assessing the risk of known and new compounds, especially when it comes to nanomaterials, is key to producing safe and green products to ensure health for all of us.
