A committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has been asked to develop a strategy for evaluating whether EPAs current regulatory toxicity-testing practices are sufficient for identifying low-dose adverse human health effects. To address this task, the committee will evaluate the scientific literature on chemicals that affect the endocrine system using systematic review methods. This workshop will explore three candidate chemicals: phthalates, TCDD, and bisphenol A, as potential case studies for those reviews. Panelists have been invited to discuss questions about critical health outcomes, windows of exposure, and other factors necessary to evaluate the proposed chemicals.
