Endocrinologists’ editorial: media unveil conflict of interest

An unprecedented scientific debate has started after an editorial published simultaneously in 14 toxicology journals, criticised EU plans for regulation of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs).

The media have recently picked up the debate and carried out their own research, revealing that nearly all of the signatories of the controversial editorial have or have had industry ties.

You can read the investigative article by Stéphane Horel and Brian Bienkowski in the original English version or translated into French and German.
