Which are worst endocrine disruptors?
Dear All, Is there any clear consensus as to which groups of endocrine
disruptors are affecting people and other species the worst? Is there any
official or unofficial ranking of this? This would clearly depend on not
only the strength of the chemicals but the quantity in the environment.
I need to know, because an environmental group I belong to in the UK is
proposing to focus their endocrine disruptor campaign onto bisphenol a and
alkylphenols exclusively. What about phthalates, dioxin-like chemicals,
pesticides? Aren't these more significant? I am very concerned that we
are probably missing the main targets if we ignore all of these. I would
appreciate your views.
