Unit 5.3 db endocrine disruptors

Chemicals, such as pesticides, hormones, and pharmaceuticals, enter our waterways every day in a multitude of ways, such as from the discharge of treated wastewater into rivers or old medicines being flushed down the toilet.  Plastics can also release its chemical components, especially as the plastic begins to degrade.  Many of these chemicals affect the endocrine system, the collection of glands that secrete hormones, which regulate many functions in humans and other organisms.  Endocrine disruptors are relatively widespread or ubiquitous in our daily lives and scientists are now recognizing that these chemicals can influence fertility, especially in males.
