Endocrine disruptors are also neurotoxicants !

schéma publi

Two researchers from the FLUID  team, Anne Denuzière and Jean-François Ghersi-Egea, have published a review on environmental pollutants classified as endocrine disruptors and affecting the nervous system: perfluoroalkanes, parabens, phthalates, organotins, bisphenols, benzophenones, polychlorinated biphenyls and dioxins. Brain analyses of wild animals and humans naturally exposed to these chemicals or of experimentally exposed laboratory animals, allow to better understand how blood-brain interfaces regulate the penetration of these compounds into the brain.
