ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the initiation of the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the U.S. in 2008. It will screen substances such as acetone and toluene for their potential to disrupt human hormones. However, it obtained accusations from the National Resources Defense Council that it is bending to special interests, while some scientists questioned its exposure criteria and challenged the reliance on certain animal testing methods.
