Endocrine Disruptors: Effects on Male and Female Reproductive Systems examines the epidemiology and etiology of environmental toxicants, or "hormone imposters, " many of which act as reproductive toxicants that cause fertility problems. This book addresses alarming issues such as declining global fertility; rising incidences of breast and prostate cancer; and the wide variety of toxic effects that the synthetic chemicals, termed endocrine disruptors, exert on the gonads, fertility, and sexual and reproductive function.
