Endocrine disruptors in water for human consumption: chemical and biological monitoring

Abstract

Endocrine disrupting compounds (EDcs) are substances that, mimicking the effect of natural hormons or antagonising their action, alter function of the endocrine systems and consequently cause adverse health effects. The problem of Endocrine Disrupters in general and, in particular, their presence in water intended for human consumption has aroused interest from researchers and concern among International organisations for the last decade.
