EDCs (ethylene dichlorides) are man-made chemicals and it can be found in consumer and industrial materials for example in plastics such as Styrofoam, Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polycarbonate (material which most feeding bottles are made of), household chemicals and agricultural products (pesticides) like insecticides, herbicides and fungicides, toxic wastes like Dioxin and Polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB ) and heavy metals like mercury and lead.

These chemicals have the ability to affect the reproductive capacity of many animals and human beings. This brings us to the question of the very survival of the human race. This booklet gives an idea on what are EDCs and how these chemicals which are used in every aspect of our lives could affect us and our future generation.
