Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals »

Endocrine disrupting chemicals are foreign chemicals which have the ability to mimic natural hormones in the body. These foreign chemicals, known as xeno compounds, have the ability to bind to receptors, both on the external membrane of cells or on receptors in the nucleus. In some instances the xeno compounds block your body's natural hormones from doing their job. In other instances, they cause the cell to initiate the hormonal receptor's particular function. What troubles scientists is not only the increased rate at which cells are being triggered, but the timing, as the processes that...
