Abstract

Current environmental and epidemiological data to interpret adverse impacts of endocrine disruptors (EDCs) is highly insufficient. These compounds are ubiquitous, can persist in the environment, and yet they are largely unregulated in the current frameworks. Their exposure is especially relevant for the susceptible population such as children.

EDC(Mind)2 is a multidisciplinary project that will address the critical gaps in knowledge of child exposure to EDCs with emphasis on the impacts on neurodevelopment in order to establish a set of good practices and guidelines designed to ultimately lead to a healthy and safe environment for children.
