Endocrine Disruption Prevention Act of 2009

Important legislation authorizing the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences to conduct a research program on endocrine disruption was introduced in the 111th Congress this past December.

Title: A bill to amend the Public Health Service Act to authorize the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences to conduct a research program on endocrine disruption, to prevent and reduce the production of, and exposure to, chemicals that can undermine the development of children before they are born and cause lifelong impairment to their health and function, and for other purposes.

Both versions of the bill were introduced on Dec. 3, 2009, and were referred to committees in their respective chambers.

The bill has been endorsed by The Endocrine Society and the American Medical Association.
