Endocrine disrupting chemicals are generally defined as substances in our environment, food and consumer products that can disrupt hormonal balance in humans and wildlife and result in adverse health effects, or in their offspring.
In this Special Issue we will address the state-of-the -art knowledge of the mechanisms and consequences of endocrine disrupting chemicals for the health of humans and wildlife, and their offspring. Hormonal systems are often considered the targets of endocrine disrupting chemicals, but every organ in the body is a receptor of these hormonal signals to perform appropriately. It is here where things can go wrong.
