About us

The characterization of possible risks for human health associated to the exposure to Endocrine Disrupters is a new priority for food and environmental safety. Since the co-ordination of the national research project (2000-2003) "Human Exposure to Xenobiotics with Potential Endocrine Activities: Evaluation of Reproductive and Developmental Risks" (2000-2003) the Italian National Health Institute (I.S.S.) has a major role in the Italian research on endocrine disrupters; moreover, the I.S.S, has contributed to the development of a national interdisciplinary network, encompassing molecular biology, experimental toxicology, dietyary and environmental exposure assessment as well as biomonitoring. The Endocrine Disrupters website aims at providing up-to-date information on activities and...
