Why are we concerned?
We are all exposed to hormone disrupting chemicals in our daily lives (also called endocrine disrupting chemicals – EDCs). But despite growing evidence that exposure to them is contributing to a range of health problems, governments have been slow in regulating and eliminating this exposure. This Call for Action arises from the urgent need to reduce people’s exposure to EDCs and states what the EU and national governments should do. Read more
What we want
The outdated EU EDC Strategy is currently being reviewed. We need a comprehensive new strategy that effectively prevents further ill-health associated with EDCs and that lays out actions for eliminating exposure.
We also call on the EU to produce a new EU EDC Strategy based on the most up to date science that is fit for purpose in the 21st century. We want to:
1. Revamp all RELEVANT EU laws TO REDUCE OUR EXPOSURE TO EDCS
2. Set out a timetable to capture all sources of EDC exposure ‘across the board’
3. Respond more swiftly to early warning signals
4. Enhance public awareness of EDCs
