Endocrine Disruptors, Brain, and Behavior
Heather B. Patisaul and Scott M. Belcher
Reviews and Awards
"<"Endocrine Disruptors, Brain, and Behavior is a MUST READ for basic scientists and their trainees in the fields of endocrinology and neuroendocrinology-as well as for others who want to understand the issues of 'EDCs.' Two world-class scientists-Heather Patisaul and Scott Belcher, both with national and international experience in the area-bring this very complex topic to the reader in an entirely understandable way. . . . The authors have done a remarkable job separating the science from the politics-and this is no easy task on this subject. I am deeply grateful for this scholarly and readable treatment!>"-Thomas Zoeller, PhD, Professor of Biology, University of Massachusetts Amherst "
"<"Patisaul and Belcher eloquently depict how the competing desires for a safer, healthier world and 'better living through chemistry' have woven threads of science and policy into a messy tapestry with many scientific holes to be filled and regulatory knots to be untangled. Their descriptions of the complex behaviors of cells, laboratory animals, and humans make it clear that the endocrine system, particularly as it functions through the brain, is critical to optimizing both.>" - Carol Kwiatkowski, PhD, Executive Director of The Endocrine Disruption Exchange (TEDX), and Assistant Professor Adjunct, University of Colorado, Boulder
"<"With Endocrine Disruptors, Brain, and Behavior two renowned scientists clarify the complexities of how environmental chemicals act on our children's brains. But going beyond the understandable disquiet they emphasize that increasing knowledge can empower us to find solutions and new ways forward. An important book.>"-Barbara Demeneix, PhD, Professor and Head of Department, Comparative Physiology Laboratory, Natural History Museum, Paris and author of Toxic Cocktail: How Chemical Pollution Is Poisoning Our Brains (OUP 2017) "
