The Academy of Finland in Helsinki will host a conference that explores the relationship between cosmetic ingredients and genital malformation in baby boys. Impacts of Endocrine Disrupters will take place on November 8-10, 2006 and will feature the latest findings on the affect of personal care ingredients on unborn children.
Scientists reportedly have discovered that some personal care ingredients may be endocrine disrupters, or interfere with hormone levels. The personal care ingredients that have been investigated are also formulated into pesticides, industrial chemicals and cleaning products. For contact information, visit C&T magazine's event calendar.
