On November 15, 2023, the German federal government unveiled a five-point plan aimed at enhancing protection against endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) to safeguard both people and the environment. This initiative aligns Germany with a select group of EU countries, including Belgium, Denmark, France, Spain, and Sweden, that are actively addressing the issue at the national level. The plan outlines key actions, including regulatory improvements, information provision, collaborative efforts, knowledge enhancement on EDCs, and bolstering international cooperation. While the EDC-Free Europe campaign partners applaud the initiative, they stress the need for specific measures, a binding timeline, and a commitment to adequate financing. Endocrine disrupting chemicals, known for interfering with natural hormones, have been linked to various health issues such as cancer, obesity, fertility problems, and thyroid disorders, as indicated by decades of peer-reviewed research.
