The problem with many pesticides and herbicides is that they fall into a group of compounds called endocrine disruptors.
EDSTAC (Endocrine Disruptor Screening and Testing Advisory Committee).
Endocrine disruptors are compounds that interfere with components of the endocrine system, which includes the glands in the body that produce and secrete hormones into the systemic circulation that may affect a variety of target organs.
For example, the amendments call for the substitution of CMRs and endocrine disruptors from all medical devices by 2026 and ortho-phthalates from invasive medical devices for children and nursing women by 2020 and for all populations by 2026.
Many cosmetics, shampoos and body washes contain a laundry list of potentially dangerous chemicals including 1,4-dioxane, which has been linked to cancer in animals, and phthalates, parabens and triclosan, all known endocrine disruptors which can alter the way hormones behave in the body.
Some experts believe it's an endocrine disruptor. These are synthetic chemicals that, when absorbed, may mimic or block hormones, potentially disrupting the body's normal functioning.
Endocrine disruptors are naturally occurring compounds or man-made chemicals that may interfere with the production or activity of hormones of the endocrine system leading to adverse health effects.
NRDC recently negotiated a legal settlement with EPA in which the agency agreed to reduce the number of animals used in the endocrine disruptor program, refine procedures to make the tests less painful or stressful, and replace animals with non-animal systems when scientifically appropriate.
EPA chartered the Endocrine Disruptor Screening and Testing Advisory Committee (EDSTAC) to carry out the FQPA and SDWA mandates.(109) At its first meeting, EDSTAC decided that "screening and testing should go beyond the scope set out in FQPA ...
It addresses the future demands humans will place on the world in terms of energy, material availability, and pollution; sustainability, business, and the plastics industry; basic information on plastics and their elements; plastic production; the societal benefits of plastics; their degradation in the environment; endocrine disruptor chemicals used in the plastics industry; the health impacts of plastics; managing plastic waste; and plastics in the oceans.
As the scientist who coined the term "endocrine disruptor," Theo--as we had the privilege to call her--played a watershed role in the field of environmental health science, particularly in raising public awareness of the effects of chemical contaminants on human health and the environment.
DEHP is another endocrine disruptor produced in high volume and found in many consumer goods, including food packaging and food wrap films.
