ClientEarth analysis: A Trojan horse in the identification of endocrine disruptors

This new analysis by ClientEarth reveals illegal action by the European Commission in relaxing rules on the use of hormone-disrupting chemicals in pesticides.

It shows that the European Commission went beyond its power, voiding the decision of the EU Parliament and Council to ban dangerous endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) from being used in pesticides.

EDCs disrupt the hormone system in humans and animals. They have very serious effects even at low doses, ranging from cancer to the deterioration of male fertility, and can disrupt human brain development.
