Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are chemicals that mimic, block, or interfere with hormones in the body's endocrine system. EDCs have been associated with a diverse array of health issues. Watch an animated overview to learn more and explore the rest of the Society's education, resources, and advocacy campaigns on EDCs.

The Endocrine Society and IPEN developed an Introduction to Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals: A Guide for Public Interest Organizations and Policymakers to raise global awareness by presenting a comprehensive picture of global exposures and health risks. The guide is available in: English, French (Français), Spanish (Español), Portuguese (Português), Russian (Pусский) and Arabic (العربية)
