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 1678-4464. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X1999000400018.

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.
