As endocrine-disrupting chemicals assume increasing importance as an issue of concern, this month H&E focuses on thyroid disruption, with three short articles explaining:

  • background on how disruption can occur and how it is measured;
  • the potential consequences of thyroid disruption on health;
  • and a summary of some chemicals which have been observed to have thyroid-disrupting effects.

In addition to links in the text, we have included a short reading list of papers helpful for understanding the issues.

Thyroid disruption is a very complex issue and we make no claim to have covered it in anything approaching its entirety. We hope, however, to have provided a concise and helpful overview of the issues.
