Time to act: Towards an EU policy to protect children from EDCs
Launch of the Life+ Project
During the last decades, endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) have emerged as a key challenge for European environment and health policies. Recent scientific evidence shows that action is urgently needed to reduce EDCs contamination of humans and the environment.
Scientific studies point out the role of perinatal exposures to EDCs, which can trigger various diseases like cancer, ADHD or diabetes, even later in life.
The European Union is now about to adopt its Strategy on EDCs and related criteria, which will serve as a basis for protecting children from EDCs adverse effects.
Taking the opportunity of launching its ChildProtect Life+ project, WECF and partners invite you to debate about EDC related policies with senior European scientists, representatives from the Commission, the European Parliament as well as NGOs and multipliers.
