Summary
"In Hormonal chaos, Sheldon Krimsky traces the emergence of an unorthodox hypothesis that casts new suspicions on a broad range of modern industrial chemicals. At the heart of his story is the environmental endocrine hypothesis, the assertion that chemicals called "endocrine disruptors" are interfering with the normal functioning of hormones in animals and humans. The theory is both attractive and troubling - attractive because it offers a unified explanation for a wide array of ills affecting modern societies; troubling because of its staggering implications for the effects of modern industrial practices." "Hormonal chaos tells the story of how a small group of scientists has advanced this revolutionary hypothesis, linking certain types of synthetic chemicals to over a dozen human and animal abnormalities."--BOOK JACKET
