About the Authors
  • Many reproductive and developmental health problems are caused by exposure to chemicals that are widely dispersed in our environment. These problems include infertility, miscarriage, poor pregnancy outcomes, abnormal fetal development, early puberty, endometriosis, and diseases and cancers of reproductive organs. The compelling nature of the collective science has resulted in recognition of a new field of environmental reproductive health. Focusing on exposures to environmental contaminants, particularly during critical periods in development and their potential effects on all aspects of future reproductive life-course, this book provides the first comprehensive source of information bringing together the arguments that are spread out among various scientific disciplines in environmental health, clinical and public health fields. It provides a review of the science in key areas of the relationship between environmental contaminants and reproductive health outcomes, and recommendations on efforts toward prevention in clinical care and public policy.

    • Provides information about what the common environmental chemicals are, where they come from and how people are exposed
    • Gives practical information for healthcare providers and extensive resources for finding more information when necessary
    • Provides context for the use of science and the role of health care providers in shaping public policy regionally, nationally, and internationally

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This is a leading book in the exploding field of the study of environmental impacts. Physicians, scientists, policy makers, and epidemiologists interested in this topic should read this book, not only because of the number of experts who contribute, but also because of the vast amount of information they provide. While other books may focus on animal studies and the search for a mechanism of toxicity, this one focuses more on evidence from human studies, which makes it a standout book for its audience."
