Last month, EDC-Free Europe campaigners handed over to the cabinet of EU Commission President José Manuel Barroso, a colourful collage of photos by citizens and groups around Europe who are concerned about how hormone disrupting chemicals, also called EDCs, may be harming our health.  They asked for immediate action to bring out delayed proposals that would help reduce our exposure to EDCs.

More information can be found here.


The photos were arranged in a visual image portraying President Barroso making an “all OK” sign – in the hope that he will respond positively in supporting urgent action on EDCs to reduce our exposure.
