Endocrine Disruptors: Effects on Male and Female Reproductive Systems, Second Edition examines the reproductive and health hazards of endocrine disrupting environmental chemicals from epidemiology to etiology, concluding with future directions. Divided into two sections, the first part of the book deals with the effects of environmental toxicants on the female reproductive system, with an emphasis on the effects and mechanisms of their action on the sex differentiation during development, fertility, and breast cancer. The second part deals with the effects of endocrine disruption on the male reproductive system, focusing on male fertility and the development of benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer.

Reviews for Endocrine Disruptors: Effects on Male and Female Reproductive Systems, Second Edition

The editor argues that the second edition is a model source of recent, updated, vital and viable scientific information on endocrine disruption. Based upon the distinguished panel of authors, I tend to agree. Chapter references are current and significant. I was please I was able to retrieve chemical names or pathological terms using the index. - Doody's
