The capacity of some synthetic chemicals, the so-called "endocrine-disrupting chemical," to alter hormonal activity, as well as the adequacy of the testing of chemicals to evaluate this capacity, has been called into question. Among the chemicals indicted have been certain crop protection agents or pesticides. Crop protection chemicals rank among the most closely regulated and thoroughly tested chemicals in use in both the human health and environmental hazard areas. However, it has been… CONTINUE READING
