BPA substitutes and chromosomal abnormalities

Mice exposed to low doses of BPA, BPS, diphenyl sulfone, BPF, BPAF exhibit chromosomal abnormalities that persist for several generations, according to new study in Current Biology

EDCs impact neurodevelopment across generations

Scientists obtain epidemiological evidence demonstrating adverse effects of EDC exposure on neurodevelopment in humans across several generations

Epigenesis in response to stress and toxicants

Adverse environmental influences during childhood act through epigenetic mechanisms to increase disease rates in adults; trigger factors include stress and childhood trauma, malnourishment, exposure to toxicants

DEHP and male reproductive health

New research finds reproductive abnormalities in male mice prenatally exposed to DEHP and their succeeding generations; 3rd generation effects most pronounced at lowest exposure dose
