Endocrine active substances in feeds

Endocrine active substances in feeds may represent either a direct risk for farm animals, an important exposure factor for consumers, particularly for vulnerable groups such as children as well an environmental issue associated with contaminants present in animal excreta. Therefore, this is an important issue in the novel "One Health" framework, which integrates environmental quality, animal health, food safety and human health.
Within EFSA this issue is considered by two panels:
- Panel on contaminants in the food chain (CONTAM) as regards undesirable substances, mainly of environmental origin, such as persistent contaminants and mycotoxins.
- Panel on additives and products or substances used in animal feed (FEEDAP)as regards substances intentionally added to feeds to...

Food Chains and Ecosystems

This section collects scientific references on possible approaches aimed to mitigate the exposure and/or hazard from endocrine disrupters and other contaminants in food chains and the environment .

Parma consensus statement on metabolic disruptors

A multidisciplinary group of experts gathered in Parma Italy for a workshop hosted by the University of Parma, May 16-18, 2014 to address concerns about the potential relationship between environmental metabolic disrupting chemicals, obesity and related metabolic disorders. The objectives of the workshop were to:
1. Review findings related to the role of environmental chemicals, referred to as "metabolic disruptors", in obesity and metabolic syndrome with special attention to recent discoveries from animal model and epidemiology studies;
2. Identify conclusions that could be drawn with confidence from existing animal and human data;
3. Develop predictions based on current data;
4. Identify critical knowledge gaps and areas of uncertainty.

The consensus...
