Stratégie Nationale sur les Perturbateurs Endocriniens

Vidéo publiée par le Ministère du Développement durable, Avril 2014

Réuni par Ségolène Royal le 29 avril 2014, le Conseil national de la transition écologique a émis un avis favorable sur la stratégie nationale contre les perturbateurs endocriniens

  • Ségolène Royal a accueilli et présidé le conseil national sur la transition écologique ce mardi 29 avril. La thématique environnementale à l’ordre du jour, concerne les perturbateurs endocriniens à l’origine de maladies chroniques. Une consultations publiques avait été ouverte sur le sujet. Le CNTE, conseil qui constitue un véritable dialogue environnementale, permet aujourd’hui d’aborder cette problématique et de se concerter sur les solutions envisagées : mobiliser la recherche, expertiser certaines substances, remplacer celles qui sont nocives, former des professionnels et informer les citoyens. Le rôle clé des entreprises a été souligné en matière de santé et d’environnement concernant la recherche et la mise en oeuvre de produit non toxique. Cette stratégie, véritable moteur pour l’innovation, devrait s’inscrire dans une démarche à l’échelle Européenne. Les enjeux sont tant des enjeux sanitaires qu’économiques.

Comprendre les 5 axes de la stratégie nationale sur les perturbateurs endocriniens:

  1. soutenir la recherche pour mieux connaître les perturbateurs endocriniens et leurs effets sur la santé et l’environnement, notamment en finançant des programmes de recherche et en mettant en place une plateforme public-privé qui permettra de réduire les délais des tests sur les substances chimiques ;
  2. développer l’innovation dans l’industrie, en stimulant la mise en œuvre de produits de substitution innovants et non toxiques ;
  3. renforcer l’expertise et lancer dès cette année l’analyse d’au moins huit substances chimiques par an suspectées d’être des perturbateurs endocriniens ;
  4. porter ce sujet majeur de santé publique au niveau européen et faire de la France un pays moteur de la protection de la santé et l’environnement en Europe ;
  5. améliorer l’information des citoyens, dans leur vie quotidienne comme sur les lieux de travail.

Who’s paying your Doctor?

With the NHS drug bill topping £10 billion in 2013, this BBC investigation examines the tactics employed by drug companies to tap into that lucrative market and influence which medicines your doctor prescribes

With the NHS drug bill topping £10 billion in 2013, this investigation examines the tactics employed by drug companies to tap into that lucrative market and influence which medicines your doctor prescribes.

Strict rules govern drug company spending in the UK, but still they pay out millions to doctors to attend and speak at conferences. Panorama goes undercover to see this subtle persuasion at work and asks whether you should have the right to know who is paying your doctor.

And as Britain’s most profitable drug company, GlaxoSmithKline, waits to hear whether it will face criminal charges following allegations of bribery in China, the programme reveals new evidence that GSK was recently paying doctors to boost prescriptions much closer to home, in Europe.

Clear and direct new Evidence that Autism begins during Pregnancy

New clues suggesting autism could be detected before birth

Researchers found new clues suggesting autism could be detected before birth ; their study gives clear and direct new evidence that autism begins during pregnancy. The researchers analyzed 25 genes in post-mortem brain tissue of children with and without autism. These included genes that serve as biomarkers for brain cell types in different layers of the cortex, genes implicated in autism and several control genes. Patches of unusual cell development was found in 10 samples.
