The book investigates dozens of biologically active pollutants, describes their physiological effects and assesses the evidence of their impact on humans and wildlife. Substances treated include phthalates, bisphenol-A, hormones and an array of steroids. Techniques being investigated by US EPA for the detection and analysis of steroids and hormones in water samples are presented.
