Prenatal Origins of Endocrine Disruption

Prenatal Origins of Cancer

Overview

Prenatal Origins of Cancer summarizes the scientific research on the relationship between exposure to endocrine disruptors prior to birth and cancer, either in childhood or later life.  Exposures occur in one or both parents prior to conception, or to the mother during pregnancy.  Information is presented in summary form, in graphs, tables and additional analyses.  The raw data can be accessed in an EXCEL spreadsheet, which can be searched and sorted as desired.

The Environmental Health Policy Institute of Physicians for Social Responsibility has published a series of essays responding to the question: What are we learning about the relationship between environmental toxicants and cancer? How should our regulatory system respond to this information. Click here to link to the essays.
