The peer-reviewed journal Hormones and Behavior, Volume 101, Pages 1-148 (May 2018), raises concern about how many of the 90,000+ chemicals in use today may disrupt our most basic endocrine systems with significant consequences for neurodevelopment, neurophysiology, healthy brain aging, and behavior.
- Gore and colleagues discusses how EDCs affect the development and manifestation of sexual traits, reproductive competence, and sexual behavior.
- Gore and colleagues ask : do EDCs contribute to the rise in ASD ?
- Walley and Roepke addresses behavioral aspects involved in obesogenic actions of EDCs.
- Meakin and colleagues examine EDCs potential long-lasting effects on children’s neurodevelopment.
- Sobolewski and colleagues also focuses on interactions between maternal stress and chemical exposures.
Several articles address bisphenol A :
- Nesan and colleagues focus on the effects of gestational BPA exposure on neural developmental mechanisms and resulting behaviors.
- MacKay and Abizaid highlight the disruptive effects of BPA on growth and development.
- Harris and colleagues examine the potential for behavioral and other effects of BPA to be inherited by subsequent generations.
- Plos ONE analyse changes in the vocalization patterns of the mice pups whose parents were exposed to BPA prenatally.
About PDBEs, triclosan, and other replacement chemicals :
- Braun and colleagues demonstrate that exposure to triclosan can alter thyroid activity in early childhood.
- Heerema and colleagues demonstrate that all species are exposed to EDCs and at risk for adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes.
- Vuong and colleagues review behavioral effects of prenatal and postnatal PBDE exposures.
- Høyer and colleagues address prenatal exposure to several replacement chemicals linked to hyperactivity, problem behaviors in children.
