Research on Endocrine Disruptors

Endocrine disrupting chemicals can interfere with the endocrine system and lead to problems with reproduction (i.e. egg and sperm production) and development (i.e. healthy fetal growth) in both humans and wildlife. EPA’s Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program is charged prioritizing and testing chemicals for potential endocrine disruption. EPA researchers develop and use innovative chemical screening technologies and other advanced scientific methods to help the program evaluate these chemicals for potential endocrine disruption.
