In our daily life, drinking bottled pure water, using fabric softener and making a manicure are all normal. However, you may not realize that in these daily necessities which are closely related to our daily life, there may be some substances that will interfere with the body’s endocrine and then affect health. < / P > < p > since the European Union published reports in 2015 and 2016, the possible harm of exposure to 15 endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) on the body has been elaborated, and the relevant research has been increasing. In this article, we will share with you the human health effects of EDCs in metabolism, pregnancy and long-term reproductive health, as well as the common daily necessities of EDCs (see the table in the article) to help readers choose healthier products. < / P > < p > some EDCs mimic the hormones normally secreted by the human body and deceive our body into thinking that they are hormones; others prevent natural hormones from acting. Some EDCs can increase or decrease hormone levels in the blood by affecting the way hormones are produced, broken down or stored in our bodies. There are also EDCs that can change our body’s sensitivity to different hormones. Exposure to or exposure to EDCs during pregnancy may affect fetal intrauterine growth and disrupt metabolic mechanisms, resulting in fetal metabolic mechanisms unable to adapt to the environment outside the uterus, resulting in childhood obesity and increased risk of cardiovascular disease in the future. Exposure to PFAS (perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl compounds) during pregnancy may cause low birth weight of newborns; exposure of pregnant women to DEHP and DBP will increase the risk of premature delivery. < / P > < p > for boys, maternal exposure to phthalates during pregnancy also increases the risk of shorter anogenital distances (i.e., distance between anus and genitalia), which is associated with infertility and decreased sperm count as adults grow up. < p > < p > maternal thyroid hormone imbalance has permanent and lifelong neurodevelopmental consequences for children, including attention deficit disorder, autism spectrum disorder, cognitive and behavioral disorders. < p > < p > prenatal exposure to PBDEs (polybrominated diphenyl ethers) and OPS (organophosphate esters) can reduce the IQ of newborns; prenatal exposure to organophosphorus pesticides and pyrethroids pesticides increases the risk of autism spectrum disorders. The risk of ADHD was higher in pregnant women exposed to high concentration PBDEs. Bisphenol A (BPA) has a negative effect on boys’ external behavior. The exposure of adults to PFAS and phthalates is associated with weight gain. Moreover, adult exposure to PFAS, phthalates and bisphenol compounds increases the risk of type 2 diabetes. Prenatal exposure to PFAS can increase the risk of gestational diabetes mellitus, impaired glucose tolerance, and increase the risk of childhood obesity. Bisphenols and parabens may also lead to gestational diabetes mellitus. One popular hypothesis is that prenatal exposure to EDCs can interfere with testicular development and is associated with reproductive health in men throughout their lives. However, most of the reproductive health epidemiological studies are cross-sectional, and it is difficult to prove the causal relationship. There was a positive correlation between prenatal and perinatal exposure to PBDEs and cryptorchidism. Occupational exposure to pesticides was positively correlated with prostate cancer in men. Exposure to high molecular weight phthalates is associated with decreased testosterone. < p > < p > a variety of EDCs were associated with the decrease of semen quality. They include phthalates, BPA, BPS (brominated polystyrene) and OPS insecticides. Similarly, there are also hypotheses that prenatal exposure to EDCs may lead to reproductive diseases in women. Bisphenol A and multiple PFAS are associated with an increased risk of polycystic ovary syndrome in women. DEHP was positively correlated with endometriosis. PFAS and OPS insecticides were positively correlated with breast cancer in women. < / P > < p > through the research and carding of scientists, we can see that EDCs have adverse effects on many aspects of human health. Some substitutes of compounds, which have not been rigorously tested, have been used in daily necessities and have been found to be harmful to health in subsequent studies. < / P > < p > in order to minimize human exposure, we should try our best to identify and avoid excessive exposure to EDCs. It is also important that, as suggested by the scientists in this review, “regulators should strengthen the definition and identification of EDCs and strengthen pre marketing toxicological testing.”.
