Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals in Food by I. Shaw Book PDF Summary
The rise in the incidence of health problems, such as reproductive disorders and testicular and breast cancer, has been linked by some to endocrine-disrupting chemicals in the environment. The role of food in transmitting these chemicals is uncertain and a topic of considerable research. This important book addresses key topics in this area. Opening chapters review the effects of endocrine-disrupting chemicals on health and behavior. The second part of the book covers the origins, analysis, and risk assessment of endocrine disruptors in food products. Concluding chapters concentrate on particular endocrine-disrupting chemicals.
