Endocrine Society calls for stricter European regulation of EDCs
June 20, 2016

Recommended European Commission regulatory criteria regarding endocrine-disrupting chemicals do not go far enough to protect human health, according to a statement released by the Endocrine Society.

In a statement, the Endocrine Society called the European Commission’s regulatory criteria “too strict to effectively protect the public from endocrine-disrupting chemicals.”
Henry M. Kronenberg, MD, president of the Endocrine Society, said in a press release. “To protect pregnant women, children and future generations from chemicals of concern, we need science-based regulation that reflects the growing body of evidence documenting this public health threat.”
