EPA and Endocrine

October 06, 1997

Environmental Protection Agency officials will be traveling around the country this month to hold public meetings to address growing concerns about the problem of hormone-disrupting chemicals that are finding their way into the food chain and water supplies.

These so-called endocrine disrupting chemicals mimic hormones, and their presence correlates with a wide range of health problems including declining sperm counts and increases in breast and testicular cancer.
