HEAL to EU Commission: protect public health - use scientific rigor to identify EDCs
HEAL has made its official submission to the Commission’s public consultation on the criteria to identify hormone disrupting chemicals (known as EDCs).
Leading EDC scientists around the world have raised the alarm on EDCs because of rising rates of serious hormone related chronic diseases, including cancer, diabetes, learning disabilities, and reproductive problems. HEAL wants the EU Commission to use the best science to identify these harmful chemicals, so that laws designed to protect public health by reducing people’s exposure can be properly implemented.
The consultation closed on 16 January 2015.
An impressive 20,440 individuals said ’no’ to hormone disrupting chemicals via an easy to use online platform launched by the EDC-Free coalition. HEAL acts as the Secretariat to the coalition.
