Print Book & E-Book. ISBNWhen trying to achieve a healthier lifestyle dietary and exercise change tend to get most of the attention. But, there’s another step you can take for a healthier life– reducing your intake of toxic chemicals.
In particular, chemicals known as Endocrine Disruptors (EDs) confuse your body by increasing or decreasing the production of various hormones. Endocrine disruptors are found in many everyday products, including some plastic bottles and containers, liners of metal food cans, detergents, flame retardants, food, toys, cosmetics, and pesticides.
Some endocrine-disrupting chemicals are slow to break-down in the environment. That characteristic makes them potentially hazardous over time. The book has been written for researchers and research clinicians interested in learning about the actions of endocrine disruptors and current evidence justifying concerns for human health but is useful for those approaching the subject for the first time, graduate students, and advanced undergraduate : Philippa D.
Darbre. This publication is an update of the scientific knowledge, including main conclusions and key concerns, on endocrine disruptors, to address concerns about the potential adverse health effects of chemicals on humans and wildlife.
The book has been written for researchers and research clinicians interested in learning about the actions of endocrine disruptors and current evidence justifying concerns for human health but is useful for those approaching the subject for the first time, graduate. As authors Heather Patisaul and Scott Belcher outline, there is a large lack of data and evidence in this causal relationship, which begs a need for further study to accelerate progress in the endocrinology and neuroendocrinology ine Disruptors, Brain, and Behavior focuses on if and how these chemicals, known as endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs), affect the development and function.
Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are chemicals that mimic, block, or interfere with hormones in the body's endocrine system. EDCs have been associated with a diverse array of health issues. Watch an animated overview to learn more and explore the rest of the Society's education, resources, and advocacy campaigns on EDCs.
This chapter discusses the potential for endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) to influence the development of cancer in female endocrine-sensitive tissues of the breast, endometrium, ovary, and cervix, and in male hormone-regulated tissues of the prostate, testis, and breast.
The following is a really nice article about endocrine disruptors (chemicals that can interfere with the body's hormonal system).Journalist Hillary Brueck writes about where they are found (all around us!), some of the many negative health effects, and about NYU physician and researcher Dr.
Leonardo Trasande and his new book: "Sicker, Fatter, Poorer: The Urgent Threat of Hormone-Disrupting. Book Description. Uses Computational Tools to Simulate Endocrine Disruption Phenomena.
Endocrine Disruption Modeling provides a practical overview of the current approaches for modeling endocrine activity and the related potential adverse effects they may induce on environmental and human health. Based on the extensive research of an international panel of contributors from industry.
The first part of the book reviews the impacts of endocrine disrupting chemicals on health and behaviour, with chapters on the effect of dietary endocrine disruptors in such areas as the developing foetus, cancer and bone health.
Parts two and three focus on the origin and analysis of endocrine disruptors in food products and risk assessment. Effects on Male and Female Reproductive Systems, Second Edition.

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.
There is great concern regarding the reproductive and health hazards of endocrine disruptors. Research indicates that men are experiencing declining fertility and an increased incidence of prostate cancer, while women are dealing with increased infertility, early menopause, and breast cancer.This book discusses the hazardous effects of endocrine disruptors on gonads, fertility, and sexual and reproductive function, and health hazards leading to the alarming decline in global fertility.The term endocrine disruptor was coined at the Wingspread Conference Center in Wisconsin, in One of the early papers on the phenomenon was by Theo Colborn in  In this paper, she stated that environmental chemicals disrupt the development of the endocrine system, and that effects of exposure during development are often permanent.
