On November 8, 2013 at 12pm EST the non-governmental organization The Collaborative on Health and the Environment hosts an open and free web call on endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). The speakers invited for the talk are Jerrold Heindel, Program Administrator in the Division of Extramural Research and Training of the U.S. National Institutes of Environmental Health Science (NIEHS), Ana Soto, endocrinologist at Tufts University School of Medicine, U.S. and Thomas Zoeller, endocrinologist at the University of Massachusetts, U.S.. Soto and Zoeller are also co-authors of the 2012 “Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals and Public Health Protection: A Statement of Principles from The Endocrine Society” article which stressed the risk of low-dose effects and non-monotonic dose-responses of EDCs. The call is to discuss the ways by which EDCs interfere with reproductive processes and American and international regulatory efforts to limit exposure to EDCs.
