Abstract

MEYER, Armando; SARCINELLI, Paula N.  and  MOREIRA, Josino C.. Are some Brazilian population groups subject to endocrine disrupters?. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 1999, vol.15, n.4, pp. 845-850. ISSN 0102-311X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X1999000400018.

Several chemical substances suspected of endocrine disruption are currently being used in industrial and agricultural activities in Brazil. This paper presents analytical data showing contamination of some population groups by these substances. Virtually nothing is known about the related health effects, highlighting the need to implement a national program to evaluate such impacts.

Keywords : Endocrine Disrupters; Environmental Exposure; Occupational Exposure.
