Introduction to EDCs

A Guide for Public Interest Organizations and Policymakers

To raise global awareness about endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) the Endocrine Society and International Persistent Organic Pollutants Elimination Network (IPEN) joined together to develop an introduction to EDCs Guide. The guide draws from each organization’s strengths to present a comprehensive picture of global EDC exposures and health risks. Endocrine Society authors contributed the scientific and health-related content, and IPEN provided knowledge of global policies and perspectives from developing and transition countries.

The guide is available in several languages:
