There was a grand total of just over 12 news articles available on this latest research. Yup, the coverage on EDC's, chemicals that are altering our DNA, sickening & destroying humanity, are only worthy of just over 12 articles?

Before we get to the latest, there is a PDF included in this article- download it and read it- Good for background information. That said, I have taken just two paragraphs from the PDF for your information
The endocrine system regulates virtually every aspect of human health from development in the womb, to growth, to reproduction, and overall health. Recent science shows that even very small amounts of these chemicals or mixtures of these chemicals disrupt the endocrine system, reducing intelligence, disrupting reproductive systems, and causing other health problems. There may, in fact, be no safe level, especially when individuals have hundreds of these chemicals in their

Which is why the Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals affects EVERY ASPECT OF HUMAN HEALTH.
The increased endocrine disease rates parallels increased production of manufactured chemicals. Global production of plastics grew from 50 million tons in the mid-1970s to nearly 300 million tons today. Similar trends hold for other chemical sources including pesticides, fire retardants, solvents, and surfactants. Sales for the global chemical industry have sharply increased from USD $171 billion in 1970 to over USD $4 trillion in 2013 (13). These and other chemicals such as PCBs ,BPA, (BPS) and phthalates, are detectable in human serum, fat, and umbilical cord bloodIn case you, the reader, has any doubt of the severe repercussions on all human/animal/plant & global health, of all living creatures, from big oil/pharma/agri/chem's toxic swill?
Caveat- This study concerns BPA only- However, if you have been following this series, you will know, that BPS , the so called ‘safe alternative’ to BPA is equally as problematic.
“Oxidative stress occurs when the body is exposed to high levels of free radicals - highly reactive chemicals that have the potential to harm cells when the body processes oxygen – and the body cannot neutralize the chemicals quickly enough to correct the imbalance. Some environmental toxins such as cigarette smoke, ionizing radiation or some metals may contain large amounts of free radicals or encourage the body to produce more of them, according to the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health.EDC’s encourage the body to work against itself, that’s you, to increase DISEASE in your body. This is not good. Clearly. And begins in utero.
Researchers analyzed blood samples from 24 mother and infant pairs to examine the effects of BPA exposure. The women had blood drawn during the first trimester of pregnancy to measure their BPA levels. The women were divided into two groups – those who had lower levels of BPA in their blood, and those who had higher levels. Researchers also took blood samples from the umbilical cords after the babies were delivered and measured the amount of chemical byproducts created by oxidative stress.
The blood analysis revealed that the human mothers exposed to higher levels of BPA and their infants showed signs of oxidative stress caused by overexposure to nitric oxide-derived free radicals. The study participants had larger amounts of byproducts caused by this type of oxidative damage in their blood.
In addition to the human subjects, the researchers studied the effects of BPA on pregnancy in sheep, rats and mice. The scientists fed animals diets containing either high or low doses of BPA. The researchers then measured the resulting oxidative stress on the mothers and their offspring using blood samples. The results corroborated the results in the human study.
