Endocrine Disruption and Human Health

 
9780128011393: Endocrine Disruption and Human Health

Endocrine Disruption and Human Health starts with an overview of what endocrine disruptors are, the issues surrounding them, and the source of these chemicals in the ecosystem. This is followed by an overview of the mechanisms of action and assay systems. The third section includes chapters written by specialists on different aspects of concern for the effects of endocrine disruption on human health. Finally, the authors consider the risk assessment of endocrine disruptors and the pertinent regulation developed by the EU, the US FDA, as well as REACH and NGOs. The book has been written for researchers and research clinicians interested in learning about the actions of endocrine disruptors and current evidence justifying concerns for human health but is useful for those approaching the subject for the first time, graduate students, and advanced undergraduate students. * Provides readers with access to a range of information from the basic mechanisms and assays to cutting-edge research investigating concerns for human health* Presents a comprehensive, translational look at all aspects of endocrine disruption and its effects on human health* Offers guidance on the risk assessment of endocrine disruptors and current relevant regulatory considerations
