Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Environmental exogenous estrogens, otherwise referred to as xenoestrogens are endocrine disruptors, structurally similar to estrogens. Xenoestrogens are clinically significant because they can mimic the effects of endogenous estrogen and thus have been implicated in precocious puberty and other disorders of the reproductive system. Exogenous estrogens can be found in pesticides, flexible plastics, flame retardants, interior lining of canned foods, various cosmetics and numerous other products. Exogenous estrogens are thought to cause many detrimental health effects such as precocious puberty in girls.show more
