About this book

Provides, in a convenient easy-to-use format, background information on the chemical, physical, and toxicological properties of suspect environmental endocrine disruptors (EEDs), a group of synthetic chemicals that have toxic effects in the environment. Much of the research on EEDs has focused on the effects of these chemicals on wildlife, in which many studies have linked certain pesticides to birth defects and aberrant sexual behaviour. Similar disorders have recently been observed in humans.
