Scientist Open Letter Calling for Global Action on EDCs

EDCs are present in consumer products and pesticides and play a role in increased incidence of reproductive diseases, cancer, obesity, and type-2 diabetes worldwide. In 2012, more than 100 governments reached consensus agreement that action is needed on EDCs through the SAICM process. With this letter, IPEN and The Endocrine Society call for swift action by United Nations agencies and recommend key principles to form the basis of the work going forward.
