The Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program is congressionally mandated, and is the only regulatory program designed to identify and characterize endocrine disrupting chemicals. These chemicals, some of which are ubiquitous in the environment and consumer products, would escape detection and regulation if the program were eliminated, and the tremendous resources already invested in building the program would be wasted. Even a reduction in funding would hamper progress in developing and applying new testing methods and would reduce the number of chemicals to be screened, tested and evaluated. EPN has created this Endocrine Disrupting Screening Program fact sheet to explain how cutting this program would allow proliferation of endocrine disrupting chemicals to continue, threatening the health of people and wildlife.
