The Endocrine Disruption Exchange, Inc., or TEDX. focuses primarily on the human health and environmental problems caused by low-dosed/or ambient exposure to endocrine disruptors or chemicals that interfere with development and function. TEDX focuses on the effects of very low and ambient levels of exposure on developing tissue and resulting function before an individual is born, which can lead to irreversible, chronic disorders expressed at any time throughout the individual’s life. Endocrine disruption takes into consideration the vulnerability of every individual in the population during their most vulnerable life stages. TEDX fills in a large gap in public health protection. Drawing upon its computerized databases on endocrine disruption and coordination with researchers in the field of endocrine disruption, TEDX provides the very latest summaries of the state of knowledge and its meaning for human health and the environment.
A compilation of world-wide ongoing research projects related to endocrine disruptions.
