A week today, on Wednesday 22 June, the European Commission will come together to make a decision over endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). Today, ahead of next Wednesday’s decision, Stéphane Horel, Journalist at the Corporate Europe Observatory has published a report focused on Europe’s EDC journey so far. Horel’s report A Toxic Affair: Season Finale is available to read now.
EDCs are chemicals that are present in everyday products – from plastics and cosmetics to pesticides. Because of their ability to interact with the hormonal (endocrine) systems of living organisms, they are suspected of having serious health and environmental impacts.

Today the European Commission is expected to announce the long-awaited scientific criteria on EDCs.
