Dealing with research in many aspects of endocrine disruption by
environmentally-encountered toxic substances in humans, other
mammals, and other vertebrates, this book looks at the role of
contaminants as endocrine disruptors. Initial chapters provide a
background on the evolution of the vertebrate endocrine system, the
evolution of vertebrate systems associated with lipid storage and
utilisation, and the degradation and excretion of toxins.
Additional chapters examine specific aspects of endocrine
disrupting contaminants (EDC), the effects on the immune and
nervous system, as well as the effects on the liver and thyroid.
Written by experts in their respective fields, each chapter
considers the evolution of endocrine signalling, the comparative
nature of supporting data, and the separate role of EDCs in adults
versus developing embryos.
