Scientists measure mixtures of EDCs from human placenta

Study by the European Human Biomonitoring Initiative (HBM4EU) finds chemical mixture extracts from human placenta with endocrine-disrupting properties, confirming developmental exposure to EDCs in the womb; novel method can help identify the link between chemical exposures and harmful human health outcomes

Upcoming FPF webinar on novel bioassays for FCMs

On June 30, 2020, the Food Packaging Forum (FPF) will hold a webinar featuring a presentation from Alan Bergmann from the Swiss Centre for Applied Ecotoxicology on recent research developing novel bioassays to improve testing of food contact materials (FCMs); method improves sensitivity of detecting estrogenicity within complex mixtures of chemicals
