New leaflet: Endocrine disruptors in the healthcare sector – Are there reasons for concern?

HCWH leafletCampaign partner Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) Europe have recently published a new leaflet created for healthcare professionals on EDCs.

The leaflet entitled ‘Endocrine disruptors in the healthcare sector – Are there reasons for concern?’ examines the reasons why we should be concerned, who is at risk and where EDCs are hidden in the healthcare sector.

Despite the increasing awareness of the health effects of EDCs in the European sphere, thorough legislative action has not been taken to reduce the presence of EDCs in the healthcare sector.

The leaflet looks at why harmful chemicals are allowed in this sector and what should be done to move towards an EDC-Free future.

It specifically targets medical doctors or nurses who can facilitate the transition to innovative and sustainable processes in the healthcare sector – to lessen the use of hazardous chemicals such as EDCs and contribute to limit their adverse effects on patient health.

The leaflet is available here in English and French
