Endocrine Disruptors Policy Editorial
In the summer of 2013, a group of toxicology journal editors published an editorial condemning the body of literature on biological and physiological effects of endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) in humans and animals as “irrelevant.” They further suggested that this science be disregarded in ongoing policy decisions in Europe. In response to these egregious statements, a community of scientists representing endocrinology, toxicology, neuroscience, genetics, reproductive biology, developmental biology, and countless fields of medicine, wrote this editorial below, signed by 20 journal editors-in-chief, 28 associate editors, and 56 additional signatories.
