Toiletry chemicals linked to testicular cancer.

The hormone-mimicking chemicals used routinely in toiletries, cosmetics, medicines, plastics and pesticides cause hundreds of millions of euros of damage to EU citizens every year, according to the first estimate of their economic impact.

The endocrine disruptor compounds (EDCs) are thought to be particularly harmful to male reproductive health and can cause testicular cancer, infertility, deformation of the penis and undescended testicles.

The new report, from the Nordic Council of Ministers, focuses on the costs of these on health and the ability to work but warns that they “only represent a fraction of the endocrine-related diseases” and does not consider damage to wildlife. Another new study, published in a medical journal, showed an EDC found in anti-perspirants reduced male fertility by 30%.

I just wanted to take a moment to say how we value the compliance service we have received from Nexreg. In the past two years our company has been faced with many challenges related to the sales of hazardous products in the US and Canada and Nexreg has been an excellent resource to help us ensure compliance to the ever changing regulatory environment.
