Endocrine disruptors are chemicals or man-made toxins which, when absorbed, have been shown to mimic the action of hormones. They can turn on, turn off, or change normal signals. They can alter normal hormone levels, trigger excessive action, or completely block a natural response. Any other bodily function controlled by hormones can also be affected.
