Summary
Our world and bodies are becoming increasingly polluted with chemicals capable of interfering with our hormones and thus, possibly, our present and future neural and mental health. This book focuses on if and how these chemicals, known as endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs), affect the development and function of the brain and might be contributing to neural disorders rapidly rising in prevalence. It provides an overall synthesis of the EDC field including its historical roots, major hypotheses, key findings, public health policy implications, and research gaps
