Endocrine Society experts call for plastics treaty to protect public from chemical exposure
Endocrine Society experts called on the nations participating in talks to develop a global plastics treaty to seize the opportunity to protect the public from dangerous endocrine-disrupting chemicals found in plastics.
Society member Marina Fernandez, Ph.D., spoke during the plenary of the United Nations Environment Programme Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee on Plastic Pollution Wednesday.
“Our community is united in our view that the Plastics Treaty represents an opportunity to protect human and ecological health from the adverse effects of plastic pollution by minimizing exposures to endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs),” Fernandez said in the statement.
