Which endocrine disrupting insecticides are children exposed to everyday?

The results of the first part of an enquiry by French NGO, Generations Futures into everyday exposure to endocrine-disrupting pesticides was launched on 20 March 2013.

Act now: To demonstrate the urgency of preventative action on EDCs, Generations Futures has developed a series of reports based on analyses and in-depth surveys showing the omnipresence of many EDCs in our environment, which creates a very significant exposure for the population. This series of reports is called EXPPERT (in French, EXposition aux Pesticides PERTurbateurs endocriniens).

EXPPERT 1 shows that we are exposed on a daily basis to two families of endocrine disrupting (ED) insecticides: organophosphates and pyrethroids.
