Join the Society for a Twitter Chat on Endocrine-disrupting Chemicals

Join us on Thursday, October 1 from 1-2:00 PM EDT for a Twitter chat on the health risks linked to  exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs). The Twitter chat will highlight our upcoming Scientific Statement on EDCs, set to be released next month. The statement highlights emerging evidence that ties EDCs to diabetes, obesity, infertility, hormone-related cancers, neurological issues, and other disorders.

Moderated by Andrea Gore, PhD, the chair of the task force that developed the statement, the EDCs Twitter Chat will serve as an opportunity to learn more about what EDCs are, how they affect our health, and who is most at risk. Join the conversation and get any questions you may have answered by following #EndoChat.

The following questions will be addressed:

  1. What are endocrine-disrupting chemicals? #EndoChat
  2. How do #EDCs affect our #health? #EndoChat
  3. Who is most at risk from exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals? #EndoChat
  4. How are people exposed to #EDCs? Is there a way to limit exposure? #EndoChat
