Endocrine-disrupting chemicals under the microscope:

Unravelling the Hidden Health Risks of Everyday Chemicals

ENDOMIX takes a deep dive into the impact of endocrine disruptors on human health and well-being

ENDOMIX will provide a unique new evidence base and scientific proof on the health impact of exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs), closing existing knowledge gaps between science and policy.

What are EDCs?

EDCs are substances that can interfere with the hormonal functions of the body. Hormones are crucial for regulating various bodily processes, including growth, metabolism, and reproduction. EDCs can mimic, block, or alter the natural hormones, leading to potential health problems – such as developmental and reproductive disorders. Common EDCs include bisphenol A (BPA), phthalates, dioxins, and certain pesticides.

ENDOMIX aims to comprehensively understand the impact of chemical mixtures on human health, using data from European cohorts and advanced scientific methods. By decoding the effects of endocrine disruptors, we will inform evidence-based policy-making and empower individuals with knowledge to make informed choices for their health and well-being.

Key Objectives and Impact

Paving the Way for a Safer, Healthier Tomorrow

Cutting-edge insights

Uncovering meaningful associations and causality between exposure to multiple EDCs and adverse health outcomes, leveraging robust data from European cohorts and advanced scientific methods.

Mixtures of concern

Identifying specific EDC mixtures of concern that have significant health implications, allowing for a more precise understanding of the risks associated with certain chemical combinations.

Biomarkers & Patterns

Identifying biomarkers and exposure patterns to create easily measurable indicators indicative of health endpoints, contributing to a holistic approach to understanding and mitigating the health effects of EDCs.

Real-world Application

Creating a unique evidence base for more informed policy-making and translating findings into actionable recommendations for individuals, policymakers, and society as a whole.
