  • 17α-ethinylestradiol (EE2), found in pharmaceuticals is regularly consumed and secreted mainly from women. Consequently, a significant level of this endocrine disrupting chemical is cont inuously discharged into the aquatic environment. EE2 is the most potent known estrogen discharged, it can bioaccumulate in animals and persist in nature relatively long. Laboratory research indicates decreased population growth in fish exposed to EE2 and this may consequently change the time of fecundity… CONTINUE READING
