Abstract:

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are a group of diversely natural compounds or synthetic chemicals that can interfere with the programming of normal endocrine-signalling pathways during pre- and neonatal life, thus leading to adverse consequences later in life. In addition, early life exposure to EDCs may alter gene expression and consequently transmit these effects to future generations.
