Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are associated with a number of possible health issues. EDCs are mostly produced by humans. They’re found in all sorts of things from pesticides and herbicides, and from cropland and livestock waste effluents and municipal and industrial waste to personal care products. The more climate changes, the greater the concern that more EDCs may wind up in our water and the greater the risk of exposure. That exposure to EDCs can occur from any number of sources, through the food we eat, the air we breathe, and through our skin.
